Adult flies July-September and again in spring after hibernation. Under-wings smoky-brown but maroon upper-wings have bold eye markings. Caterpillars feed on common nettle. Wingspan 60mm

Hello Bill,
Nice sharp capture of a Peacock butterfly with fine natural colours that contrast well with the phlox flower Bg that it is feeding on.
Thanks and kind regards,
Ivan
