Peacock (Inachis io)

Family: Nymphalidae

Flight Time: June-August and Spring after hibernation.

Size: 54-60mm

Altitude: 0-2500m

This goes to show the most familiar of species can often be amongst the most spectacular. Peacocks can be seen commonly in the UK and most of Europe. They hibernate as adults so they are often on the wing early in the Spring when there is any hint of warmth in the air.

Guten Morgen Heinz,
eine perspektivisch schöne Aufnahme. Trotz des 'schrägen' Blickwinkels gute Schärfe von Flügelspitze zu Flügelspitze und von den Fühlern bis zum Hinterflügelhinterrand. Wie immer ein gut strukturiertes Bild und natürliche Farben.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

hi heinz,

Hi Heinz ,
very nice shot. it has beautiful colors and sharpness.
it is lovely.

Yes I have to agree, this species has appeared many times on TN, but it is just a beautiful species, how can you resist photographing and posting it.
A beautiful shot, slightly spoilt by the OE flower at the top. I would have cloned that out, but the butterfly is still well worth a look.
