Hi everybody,
This is another Inachis Io from me. This one I took yesterday. It was amazing...so huge. I have never seen one so big. It was just warming up because it was a cold, cloudy day.
I was shooting away when it closed its wings and said: "Can you see me now?" (in my mind ;)) And for a moment I couldn't.
The underwings are so well camouflaged.
This is why I decided to make a collage of the same individual in both postures: the amazing beauty and the "low under the radar" creature.
I hope you like it.

TFW (thanks for watching)!

PS: No coordinates for this one since they keep showing water where there should be land...who knows...

Hello Catalin!
Very good idea to present this species in two different ways! :)
Pictures have of course good quality, including DOF, details, saturation and POV.
TFS and best regards,

Hi Catalin,
Good idea to show both sides of wings in the same photo.
Really impressive to see how different both sides are.

Hello Catlin,
very nice work, I like how you showing us those two diffrent views of the butterfly. The sharpness is very good and makes it easy to study the lovely details. Very well done.

Hi Catalin,
it's nice to present this peacock from both sides. It's shows clearly the difference between "hard-to-find" and "Ah-there-it-is".
Nice one.
Regards, Jacob

Hello Catalin,
Completely difference markings on two sides of wings. Thanks for showing side by side. Great sharpness and color saturation. Excellent pov and composition.

Hello Catalin,
I never thought that this butterfly could look like this with its wings closed. This is much interesting and well done! Both pictures are nicely composed with good details and exposure. This is an interesting post. Well done and TFS,

Hello Catalin
What a wonderful composition you did here with these two excellent images of Peacock in both ways, closed and openwinged. A very good way to know its so different collors up and down.
Congratulations and TFS.

Hi Catalin,
Congratulations on this collage! It is a very valuable and pedagogic contribution to get to see the species both in its "open" and "closed" state simultaneously, well done and nicely presented. TFS and good luck,

Superbe, Ó la fois instructif et magnifique.
