WALT: Write similes to describe the NZ bush - based on a picture

The thorns are as sharp as the blades on a chainsaw
The trunks are as brown as chocolate
The ferns are like emeralds in the sun
The thorns on the bush are as prickly as a porcupine
The stream is as smooth as a silky quilt
The water is as shiny as a diamond
The trees are as warm to touch as the desert sand
The big, tall trees are as fat as a drum
The water is as dirty as a polluted pond
The stream’s water was as cold as an ice cube
The cicadas are as loud as a lawnmower
The thorns are as sharp as swords
The grass is as soft as a pillow
The leaves of the tree are as green as slime
The birds are flying like bullets through the sky
