From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The European Peacock, more commonly known simply as the Peacock butterfly, is a colourful butterfly, found in Europe and temperate Asia as far east as Japan. Classified as the only member of the genus Inachis (the name is derived from Greek mythology, meaning Io, the daughter of Inachus). It should not be confused or classified with the "American peacocks" in the genus Anartia; these are not close relatives of the Eurasian species. The Peacock butterfly is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees. It therefore often appears quite early in spring. The Peacock butterfly has figured in research where the role of eye-spots as an anti-predator mechanism has been investigated.

Hi Jiri!
A nice composition with beautiful colors around. Good sharpness and details. I can see a little noise around the edges of the subject in focus, however its not affecting the overall composition. A combination of Red, pink and green colors is pleasant to look at. TFS,
