[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The European peacock, or simply Peacock (Inachis io) is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe and Asia. It should not be confused or classified with any of the other butteflies known as "peacock" in the Anartia genus of butterflies. 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.

What a delight to have such a nice picture in your unpublished archives. A tiny bit on the noisy side, but composition and sharpness makes it all goog.

Hallo Rimantas
Thanks for sharing this colourful peacock with us. This photo is jam packed with awesome detail and features. It is actually difficult to describe the beauty of this butterfly. The arrangement of colours is breathtaking. A good close-up with clear details. I enjoyed the sight. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Hello Rimantas,
You have captured this butterfly beautifully in full spread to share with us all - thanks. The colors are very contrasting and better still, you have managed it with good green background. I like the details around the back and superb clarity throughout the body.
