The Inner-workings of a Butterfly

The inner-workings of the unassuming butterfly are complex and yet functional. Fuelled by super charged nectar and pollen, he can  flip and flap his wings with amazing power and speed. This secret weapon is the key to his survival in the harsh world of the back yard garden, where predators are lurking behind every bloom.

( Read aloud in a campy  version of  Richard Attenborough)
