2108. Would you believe?

I was walking along the road when I saw it. It was a lovely summer’s afternoon. Not much traffic. And there it was! On the side of the road. I was blown away. I had never seen anything like it before.

When I got home I told my wife.

“You won’t believe what I saw today. Suddenly. On the side of the road. There it was.”

“Goodness gracious!” she said. “Is it safe?”

“I’m not sure,” I said. “I suppose I should report it.”

“But who do you report it to?” she asked. “The police?”

“I don’t know,” I said. “I’d imagine the police wouldn’t be interested. It’s not a crime.”

“Well who then?” she asked.

“Do you want to come and have a look?” I said. “It will probably still be there.”

So we walked along the road. It was really rather exciting. But when we got there it was nowhere to be seen.

“Blast!” said Janina. “I’ve never seen the rare Purple-Spotted Seven-Toed Toad before.”

      The day before yesterday I saw a pitch black fantail (a NZ native bird that is variously dull coloured in light colours) and black fantails are rare and I’ve never seen one before. So I took the camera today and had camera but no fantail!
