Peacock’s of the Air

Oh My! This photo was sent in by Anne, Cranky Cat Lady. It’s an Aglais io, a European Peacock Butterfly (known simply as the peacock butterfly), and the picture was taken by her daughter Emily Davis near Edinburgh, Scotland, on Aug. 29/20.

    @avalus, that’s funny, Czech is “babočka paví oko” where “babočka” is a generic name for butterflies of this family and “paví oko” means “peacocks eye”.
