[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Peacock (Inachis io) is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe and Asia. It is the only member of the genus Inachis. The species is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees. It therefore often appears quite early in spring.
The butterfly measures about 5 cm (2 in) from wingtip to wingtip and is easily identified by its striking eye pattern on a ruddy background, although with wings closed the cryptically coloured underwings make it look like a dead leaf.

Hello sir...
Nice pic with beautiful colours and great sharpness.....
I think the pic you captured is little bit in straight plain ...but ...if you capture it by holding your camera a bit upward and then focus on butterfly ..the pic become fantastic...
overall pic . is very nice ...I like it ...
