[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The European Peacock (Inachis io), more commonly known simply as the Peacock butterfly, is a colourful butterfly, found in Europe, temperate Asia as far east as Japan. It is 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 present 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 anti-predator mechanism has been investigated

Hello Mariana

pin sharp details and very natural colors, really an excellent capture

Hallo Mariana
This is really a beauty with lovely markings and bright colours. I like the full framed composition and with the butterfly in its classic,wide opened winged position with all its details are so beautifully displayed. Thanks for sharing. The spots of purple on the patterns on the wings compliments the flower with almost the same colour beautifully. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
