This Peacock butterfly was sunning itself on some bare earth in my garden when a bumble bee flew over it at about 6 inches. The butterfly immediatly flew up and followed the bee. My wife and I both watched as the butterfly chased the bee in and out of several plants before they both disappeared into a neighbouring garden. My question is: Why would a butterfly chase a bee, what could it possibly hope to gain?
