I'm grateful I'm at the top of the food chain... you know, just under the government and corporate capitalism. Mother Nature is a bitch.
I was outside and saw a beautiful yellow and black butterfly go by.... very quickly. Right after it came a small bird. The bird was chasing the butterfly. I never thought of a butterfly being a food source for fowl. They both flew over a wall so I couldn't see the outcome, but the bird came back in a moment or two. I wonder if this is the crazy bird I wrote about the other day.
My feeling about the butterfly showed up my bias. Would I have felt the same if I had seen a bird getting a worm? Probably not. I consider the butterfly a beautiful creature. The worm, not so much. Its not fair. But thats what I felt. Sigh.
Pretty or beautiful creatures get more sympathy. Sigh again.
Okay... I'm going to try to let the visual of the chase leave my memory. I don't want to keep it around. And that crazy bird needs to be institutionalized or medicated.
