spotted flycatcher pair bonding with painted lady!

From the carpark of the Sportsman's Inn on the Devon/Somerset border I was watching a pair of spotted flycatchers darting out from the beech hedge pursuing insects; suddenly the male caught a painted lady butterfly, returned to its regular perch and presented it to his partner. With an expected painted lady invasion lets hope it was to her taste!...
