Very odd

Is there a butterfly "farm" in the vicinity? Or is someone pulling your/our leg?

very odd indeed

I don't think my leg is being pulled but i will go back to the friends and check it was definitely in their garden. There is a walk through butterfly exhibit at the Natural history museum some 5 miles away or so but i don't know if they have this species.
