Last week kicked off with a holiday – and what better way of spending it than visiting some sights we haven’t seen before?
Not content with the sweltering heat of an unexpectedly hot day, we decided to visit the Butterfly House …
… which was alarmingly hot and humid just like the tropics.
My camera immediately misted up, as did my glasses, so that the rows of chrysalises from which more butterflies would hatch, hung in the misty air like ghostly bats.
We saw a delightful variety of butterflies, but not as many as I had imagined, and I was feeling slightly disappointed when this luminous beauty landed on Sir Pe.
She flexed her long legs to show off the pollen collected there like golden nuggets and flapped her ruby wings shyly before flying off to land on my shoulder.
Oh, the changes a butterfly goes through to achieve such enchanting beauty!
