Mountain Rescue Butterfly
After the passing storm, a thick fog settles over my mountains. For those familiar with the many winding mountain paths, they know where and when to make camp and wait out the fog. Yet my mountains regularly call to travelling and adventurous pets, those who don't know the dangers the sudden fog can hide.Find Food
As the fog descends I begin my patrol, gliding silently over the winding paths hidden between towering trees and rocky ledges. One wrong step by an inexperienced pet can be a life-changing experience - often not in a good way. Thankfully no pet has been harmed in my mountains in a long time.
When I do find a lost pet, I guide them back to safety. My vivid colouring makes it easy for pets to follow me through the dense fog. Once I am certain they are safe and understand the dangers of travelling before the fog lifts, I set out on another patrol to find other pets lost in the fog.
Your pet becomes an expert at finding its own food!Distance flying
Many species of butterflies that migrate thousands of miles south in the fall do not return to their previous summer residences. One autumn a few clever butterflies devised a plan to make the long trip back home so they could be reunited with their friends again next year. The butterflies stitched a map of each leg of the journey, updating it whenever they stopped at a rest stop. A single strand of silk from their silkworm cousins kept the map securely attached to their abdomens.
After a long winter in sunny Mexico the butterflies studied the map carefully, took a big sip of nectar from their favorite flower, and off they went. Imagine the surprise of all their friends back home when they returned the following summer! The garden was abuzz with tales of their amazing journey. The butterflies’ stories were so inspirational that they all decided they wanted to experience that kind of epic road trip for themselves. Year after year, they planned destinations further and further away so they could challenge each other to set a new long-distance record.
