Fluffy Butterflies

Fluffy Butterflies (first published on Blue Monster)

A pet hate of mine is fluffy butterflies, whatever possessed anyone in their right mind to make fluffy butterflies? Do these flying insects in the natural world have a coating of fur like mammalians? I think not, nor do they come in such lurid shades of purple and pink – and they certainly are not glittery!

Oh I know they have golden shimmer upon their wings and some are a deep dawn blue that is luminous but they are not fluffy and they are not of the sort of size a small child can hug happily. Besides, have you ever seen a magnified image of one? They do not exactly inspire cuddly thoughts but more – oh my god this thing can fly! Where can I hide?

I have very specific things I want to do to people who make purple and pink fluffy butterflies.
