Wow - we had so many of these beautiful painted lady butterflies at my mothers house in North Wales, you could see hundreds at any one time it was stunning! They are all the way from North Africa - if you're in the uk you can probably see one now... I spent ages trying to get a close up, I think this one's pretty good.
We also went to the beach and saw thousands of these weird creatures, I think they must be jelly fish spawn, very weird, they were all along the coast line and in the water about the size of grapes - but see through. E was loving them, they were a little like precious jewels (but squidgier!)
