The Butterfly (Actually it was a cabbage moth)
I was in my garden just now and I pulled out a weed and a little white butterfly fell onto the soil. (actually it was a cabbage moth but names are only labels right...) Seems it had just hatched from its cocoon and it's wings were still all floppy ... like they hadn't set yet. It couldn't be the right way up ... it had to be upside down so it's wings could set straight. It was weird. So there I sat ... with it sitting upside down on my finger waiting ... and waiting ... just when I was starting to get impatient ... it took off and flitted off into my vege garden ... to start eating my cabbages I suppose. Anyway ... I'm sure that it will have a lovely life as there are lots of cabbages in my garden.
