Family: Nymphalidae

Genus: Inachis

Species: I. io

The European peacock caterpillar (Inachis io), more commonly known simply as the peacock caterpillar, is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe and Asia. It is the only member of the genus Inachis which is sometimes included in Nymphalis. 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 butterfly hibernates over winter before laying its eggs in early spring, in batches of up to 500 at a time. The caterpillars, which are shiny black with six rows of barbed spikes and a series of white dots on each segment, hatch after about a week and feed on nettles and hops.
The adult butterflies drink nectar from a wide variety of flowering plants, including buddleia, sallows, dandelions, wild marjoram, danewort, hemp agrimony, and clover; they also utilize tree sap and rotten fruit.The Peacock can be found in woods, fields, meadows, pastures, parks, and gardens, and from lowlands up to 8,200 feet elevation. It is a relatively common butterfly seen in many European parks and gardens.

Distribuita in gran parte dell'Europa, da 0 a 2500m d'altitudine.
Descrizione: ali anteriore e posteriore superiori con grandi "occhi" bianchi e blu, colore dominante è il rosso o marrone rossiccio per l'ala posteriore.
Vola generalmente tra marzo e agosto frequentando posti aperti e soleggiati in un gran numero di habitat.

mi sembra di intravedere degli sprazzi di colore...forse neroazzurri?

Ciao Luciano,
superb close up of this butterfly
The details are very nice and sharp.

Che bomba...sexy! Non so se ha avuto più coraggio lei a mettersi in posa così conciata che tu a fotografarla. Se la vedesse qualcuno...dalla Spagna.... ti denucerebbe.... Coeva del nostro Silvione...?
Un controluce stratosferico in ottima qualità.


Hello Luciano
Very good macro shot of this butterfly with great sharpness and clarity.
Best regards

Hi Luciano,
This one is quite similar to my last pic of peacock pansy(The last flight).
The wings are damaged. Captured with good details & sharpness.
I like the composition. Well done & TFS.

hi Luciano,
seems you were in mood :)
this butterfly is a beauty, but the old one here... yes, Time! ... the most powerful one... poor thing.
innovative angle :)

Ciao Luciano,

Hi Luciano,
really interesting photo. Nice colours. Great composition.
Have a nice week,

Ciao Luciano,
Splendid lights and details on this photo of this old Butterfly, TFS!

Ciao Luciano, oltre alla radiografia dovevi farci anche la TAC ed encefalogramma, poi provvedere ad una pietosa sepoltura, è uno dei roittami più clamorosi che abbia mai visto, seconda solo alla tua indimenticabile podalirio incollata col nastro adesivo, questa te l'hanno espulsa dall'ospizio di Cuggiono che alzava tropo l'età media, tecnicamenter la foto è di elevata qualità, ottima ambientazione, solendida gestione del controluce e ottimi dettagli, bel ricordino funerario, bravo, ciao Silvio

Hello Luciano,
The title of this amazing image is perfect.....I can not imagine how this butterfly can fly....Is he dead or alive? The details, clarity and focus are perfect as usual.
Interesting photo with very good clarity.
Thanks for sharing!

Bonjour Luciano,

Le papillon est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du papillon Paon du jour. La lumière de l'après-midi donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
