The Stunning Peacock

With all the excitement of a rare butterfly on the Island in the last few days I have  neglected to show what I consider to be most colourful butterfly on the wing at this time.
The Peacock is undoubtedly one of the most handsome of butterflies and I am glad to say not uncommon here. It can be seen in woodland,as shown in these photographs taken at Walters Copse, or in gardens as I was fortunate enough to witness in my own back garden this weekend.
