Go Green , Butteryfly park - BaliI wish you were here with me, in my cubical to watch the rain, through the windows. The heavy rain is accompanied by wind blowing it in all directions. It as if she is determined to reach every nook and corner for drenching it. Rain is special to each of us, because its life in action. It’s God herself, manifesting right in front of our eyes, feeding (us) her children.
I brought a framed blue butterfly, like in the picture , FYI they are not killed for thisEating by the rice fields of Bali was so addicting, that we spent good two hours relaxing in the restaurant, and then walking around its neighborhood. Later we slept our way to Butterfly Park. Actually the driver decided to stop there because we had sometime to kill before the sunset watch in an iconic place. But it turned out to be very interesting.
The baby butterflies inside the shelterWe walked around the park, which had so many different flowers. The main enclave with plastic chain entrance nurses the cocoons and baby butterflies. A good looking smiley patiently explained to us, a lot about the Butterflies. To me she actually looked like butterfly fairy.
One hibuscus flower can feed upto 5 butterflies, its like megamart for themAfter about half a month the butterflies are born. They are kept in the shelter for half day, to train themselves to fly. Then they are let out to the park area, where they can feed themselves from hundreds of flowers. Unlike Singapore park, they don't feed artificial food (like banana or nectar) here. She told me that doing so would reduce the lifetime of the butterfly.
They mate only once in their life time for 8 hours & They live only for 2 weeks.I guess life should be such. See only the beauty of life, like how they look for flowers in the garden. Find only the best out of everyone you meet, like how they find the best nectar. And live an admirable, beautiful and independent life even it’s only for a while.
