a circle of life kind of thing

We went to the zoo today. It was wonderful and peaceful. The kids were really into it especially Roen. His curiosity is boundless right now. We were walking through the Monarch butterfly exhibit when a little chipmunk ran in the tent. At first, we thought, "oh how cute!" But then, it darted at a Monarch butterfly and missed. The butterfly flitted away but not far enough. The chipmunk grabbed him and ate up the body and spit out the wings. We were all aghast. It seemed so terrible to watch a cute fuzzy chipmunk eat a beautiful butterfly. Simone was saying, "Mommy, that chipmunk is being bad!" I had to agree.
