There was a butterfly display team practising in our back garden earlier today.
A squadron of one-dozen brightly coloured butterflies swooping low over the lawn; climbing into the sky in a formation that resembled a large moth. They split into to wings and red, white and blue smoke poured from their abdomens as they scudded towards each other, only to peel off at the last moment.
The display lasted a good 10-15 minutes and was breath-takingly good. I recommend you see them whenever you can this summer - I'm sure they'll be coming to a garden festival near you sometime.
