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.
It 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.
Okay, we think we have seen one, we are not completely sure but decide to take it’s photo anyway.
That is a good start to the day. We congratulated each other and pressed on deeper into the jungle.
As we hacked our way through the swarms of biting insects we suddenly spotted another one. This time we were sure that it was a butterfly and we approached with stealth.
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.
However luck was on our side and as we wandered aimlessly through the undergrowth we came upon our final trophy of the day.
Eventually we found the trail and escaped the Jungle. We had achieved everything that we set out to do and we hadn’t lost our balls in the process. A good days shooting.
The 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”
