They checked in and their bungalow and room was really quite lovely.
They were going to share a room with two beds. It was about and they were to settle in and wait for CSIRO (Commonwealth Sciences & Industrial Research Organization) Entomologist Dr. Nicholas Throckmorton to meet them for lunch.
They went out into the garden to look for butterflies while they waited. Donnie nearly gave Mr. Butterfly a heart attack when he swore he saw an Eltham Copper Butterfly, but when it flew, Mr. Butterfly was able to identify it correctly as only a Common Brown butterfly.
The two do look similar with closed wings. They also saw a monarch.
The garden did not contain the correct shrubbery to attract the Eltham Copper: sweet bursaria. Nor were nests of the night ants Notoncus enormis required to attend to the larvae noted. Mr. Butterfly was glad that they had not gotten the

Dr. Throckmorton showed up punctually at . He was extremely tall, not bad looking at all, and introduced himself as Nicholas. Dr. Aubrey introduced himself as Donnie and of course, Mr. Butterfly went as always plus with a wink and a smile. They lunched quickly at a fish and chips place where they discussed the life cycle of the Eltham Copper butterfly.
Since he wanted them to be on the same page, Nicholas told them that the butterfly presents a fascinating example of co-operation between two very different insect groups, sharing a host plant. Its eggs are laid on plants of a spiny dwarfed form of Sweet Bursaria (Bursaria spinosa), at the bases of which nest ants of the genus Notoncus.
The larvae (caterpillars) which hatch from the eggs are constantly tended by the ants, which accompany the larvae into the ant nest during daylight or during inclement weather.
The larva obtains both shelter and protection from the ants, while the ants probably harvest sugar and amino acid secretions from the larva. Larvae pupate in or near the ant nest, with adult emergence occurring from about late November to mid-January at Eltham. The adults feed on nectar of Bursaria flowers, and that of other species such as Hakea spp. A second wave of emergence occurs during March-April, possibly reflecting a Decemberegg-laying. Alternatively, this second generation may over winter as larvae until the next season, depending upon vegetation and climatic conditions during the summer months.
Eggs of the Eltham Copper Butterfly are laid near the base of a Sweet Bursaria plant a few centimeters above the ant nest. They may also be deposited amongst leaf litter.
At night ants Notoncus enormis attend an Eltham Copper larva feeding on Sweet Bursaria.
The largest colony at Eltham, occupying only a few hundred square meters, contained 300-500 larvae when estimated directly by nocturnal counts. Adult Eltham Coppers are fast flyers, defending a territory of perhaps 20 meter radius and, although small, are exquisitely marked, with the male hind-wing bearing a distinctively sharp patch of bright copper scales.
Of course, Mr. Butterfly already knew all of this, but it was good for Donnie to hear it from a local expert. So, done with their nutritious repast, they were off into the field to find the butterfly in question. First they visited Sweeney’s Flat.
What a great place for butterflies! There were flowering shrubs everywhere! Nicholas led them directly to the sweet bursaria and it didn’t take them long to spot an Eltham Copper amongst the other myriad butterflies dancing above the brightly colored flowers. Nicholas and Mr. Butterfly went to the base of the bush to look for the Notoncus ant nest. It was there along with the busy ants.
After a long day in the field, the three young men dined at the same fish and chips place and returned to the
Mr. Butterfly had the most interesting dream. He dreamt that Nicholas had stayed. Their loggings had a large tub that was filled to the brim with a hot bath water. Nicholas was in there soaking and called for the other two men to join him. Donnie and he entered the foggy room and could just see Nicholas’ head bent back in pleasure and the bright red head of his long erect cock rising above the water as he stroked it. Donnie shed his terry cloth bath robe and got into the tub. Kneeling in the bath, Donnie put his hand over Nicholas’ and took over the stroking. Nicholas stood to his full height and slapped Donnie in the face with his long, thin cock. It had to be 10 inches at least! Donnie opened his mouth to accept the organ. He could hardly take any of its length into his mouth at all. But Nicholas seemed to enjoy Donnie’s efforts nonetheless.
The young explorer stood in befuddlement. How could he join this duo? Should he join this duo? He was perplexed to the max, but could not take his eyes from the scene unfolding before him. Nicholas bent before Donnie and Donnie shoved his face into the man’s ass. Nicholas had a pretty asshole. It was pale in complexion and resembled fine white porcelain tinged with pink in the throat and was and begging to be eaten. Donnie jerked furiously as he did this. Then Donnie stood and Nicholas took his turn eating Donnie’s tanned ass which had soaked in the tub a while. What a beautiful ass it was! He had such firm and muscular cheeks and it was pretty much hairless as he was. Nicholas had to forcibly part Donnie’s cheeks with his hands to get to his tight little hole with his tongue. Donnie squirmed with pleasure.
From somewhere, Nicholas produced a condom and donned it. He had Donnie kneel in the tub and grab the siderail while he entered him from behind. His cock was so long that it was going to be painful to get it all in. But Donnie was quite the trooper and bore it well until the final two inches when he squealed like a pig as Nicholas forced his way in. Then Nicholas fucked him good and hard. Donnie’s head bent down with the pleasure of it and he moaned endlessly. The young explorer stared fixedly at the scene before him.
Suddenly he woke in a cold sweat. His bedclothes were soaked through. He looked at his watch and it was . He just had to get some sleep tonight. He changed the bed linen from the supplies in the closet. Thankfully there was a full set of extra sheets. He lay down on his newly made bed to try and get some rest. How was he going to face Nicholas and Donnie in the morning after a dream like that?
