Same trip up the Gulf...

there we are on the piss at the camp one night, stars shining, coastal mallee roots on the fire, full guts, and heaps of beautifully colored moths gently flitting about, hovering and looking closely at us.

Says I, to the resident gofer and part time deckie, ( who incidentally, happened to exist on a self imposed staple diet of baked beans out of a can and proved conclusively that you may be able to exist on this diet for at least seven months before you go guts up and all ya skin goes scabby and falls off), ... "check out the fucken moths!! how cool is that, that cunt's coming in real close"...

He proceeds to relate to me the first time that he met, and was admiring one of the friendly pretty moths, which at the time fluttered gently about two inches in front of his nose, and was quietly talking to the boys around the fire about the experience as it happened...

"how cool is that, ay. Look at the cunt. Check it out boys!!"..

and it fluttered closer, slowly following the upwards slope of his nose, to halt just in front of his right eye. Where it gently fluttered and drew closer, insect and deckie as one in the warm starry pilbara night, and slowly it unwound its snout...

Then stabbed him in the eye with it.

Fucken cunt of a thing.

I lifted the pics from the internasty - apparently these are "white lined sphinx humming bird moths" - they look like the evil fuckers up north and the description of their habits fits, especially the curled snout and hovering ability.

You could fucken spit roast the cunt in your link!! How was it?

Here I thought we were having a sensitive post from our dear Rackie....but I see things are the way they always are by the ending of it.

And here I was thinking that my sensitive and fucken thoughtful post would be appreciated - not much I can do about it if the local insect life are cunts of things that stab fuckers in the eye and fuck up the sensitive nature of the post.

I'll be back next week - gotta fly.

Your intimate bond with Nature humbles me sometimes, Rack.
Just once I'd like to hear David Attenborough narrate one of his syrupy documentaries in your inimitable style'
'...Of course these gentle giants of the sea have nothing to blame but themselves for their problems. The lazy cunts have brains the size of Volkswagens and all they do is swim around all fucken day with their stupid fucken mouths open eating krill. Get a real job and stop asking for handouts from the fucken Greens, you fucken useless fucken humpbacks...'

Hmmm... Kinda rude. But funny, too, I guess.

Your unlike anyone I've (n)ever met, Rackorf.

Did the moth hurt him?

They are weighty. I think I had one hit my motorcycle helmet once at about 80k. Just about took my head off

I appreciate your post. The moth is very pretty.

I love capturing moths & holding them in my cupped hands. They feel so soft & plump as they flutter. There is also a certain caterpillar or cutworm that I sometimes find when I'm digging in the dirt that has a real sensuous silky feel to it.

Fingers - We've got the script happening for the doco...

"And here we have a pod of the stupid fuckers that have swum up on the beach to die and stink the fucken joint out. The Orange Coated Whale Pusher Backers appear in a sudden flock to hug and try to interfere with the natural urge of the huge but simple leviathans to end up in a land fill site. Although they enthusiastically hug the cunts, tip water over them and try to push them back to where they don't want to be, ultimately they are wasting their time. The fucken Hunchy is a dumb but stubborn cunt. When he wants to fucken die nothing will get in his path.
A solitary Rackorf rolls up in his ute and carefully picks the fillets out of the dead cunts with a farmboss. The flock of Pushy backs goes fucken mental, shrieking and wheeling, and making their peculiar but distinctive bleating/whiney noise...

Reg - Fucken hurt him! The cunt completely fucked his eye - Nah not really, it just stuck him a bit - look at the pic and image that snout buried 1/8 inch into ya eye.

U/S - I copped a fucken kookaburra in the face at 130k's once wearing a half lid, solid little cunts they are too. Did you ever notice how the bugs seem to target the sensitive part just inside your nostrils. Poxy fuckers. I'll stick to the fucken fourby nowadays.

Hairy - Is this just before you eat them?

You Aussies and your creepy bugs and poisonous snakes...

Trav - we've got to make up for the "official" lack of big bitey mammals somehow. To help tip the scales and make the place interesting -we've also got the Irukandji, just in case the world class white pointers, other sharks or crocs don't get you when you have a dip on a hot day.

(Fuck swimming!!! the bigger the bait - the bigger the bite)

I just like the way they feel. I don't want to gag on them.
