Butterfly Halts Construction !?!
Here's proof that reality is stranger than fiction. We've all been frustrated when projects are interrupted for archaeological, historic or environmental purposes but this one definitely takes the cake.

The Ministry of Environment pulled the development plans for the area to protect this little bugger. [via aftenposten.no]
