Butterfly finds the best seat in the house - the performer's forehead.
There was an unexpected star on stage at the Carl Nielsen International Flute Competition in 2014. A peacock butterfly couldn't resist Yukie Ota's beautiful rendition of Pierre Sancan's Sonatine for Flute and Piano and alighted on the performer's forehead.
Most impressively, both butterfly and flautist remained focussed on the task at hand: for Ota, not missing a beat; and for the insect, finding the best seat in the house.
