Butterfly Safari

Fizz and I are going on safari. We are hunting Butterflies but we are not going to the sweet flower meadows where we have been playing, today we are going into the jungle.

The JungleIt is dangerous out here there are lots of bugs and most of the plants either bite or sting, you could lose your ball out here and no-one would ever know.

With our goal accomplished and noting that it was getting late and we had not brought sandwiches, we decided to retrace our steps and head for home.

It was not going to be that easy the rate of growth in the jungle is very rapid and the path that we had cut had simply vanished.

FizzThe animal that featured in this post was called a Comma Butterfly. There were a few other species about that were not quite so co-operative and they can have a separate post, “The Ones That Got Away”
