[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This white peacock is a species of butterfly in the family Nymphalidae, found in the southeastern U.S.A. throughout much of South America. The males of the species display a unique territorial behavoir, in which they stake out a territory typically 15 meters in diameter that contains larval host plants. They perch in this area and aggressively protect it from other insects and other male white peacocks.
