thanks for the comments,

as i have said before my

Dad collected butterflies, and moths

and collected many in india,

later he destroyed them as it was not the thing and became distasteful,
but i remember him pinning them out onto cork mats,

yes Daisy
always one will survive to start again,

so all is not lost

happily we don't do this kind of thing now,
but it was a accepted hobby,

and every one in the village were i grew up would come to the door with moths and butterflies

they had found for my Dad to

and us children would be sent to get laurel leaves,

once put inside a jar withe the victim an instant death from the fumes.

so very sad to think of it now

Yes, V3 is definitely the most moving.
I like flicking through the first 3 to see they little butterfly emerge from the dessication to comfort the little girl.

Oooh...I definitely love V3 above the rest. The little butterfly is approaching her and going, "What do we do now?"
