Peacock butterfly


Peacock butterfly (Inula hookeri)

There were four of these beauties on my Inulas - and I managed to persuade one to sit still for a photo. :-)

Many thanks - I took lots of shots as one of the Peacocks was enjoying the Inula so much! I missed a beautiful Red Admiral - he didn't hang about. :-(

that's what happens when people visit you, loads of butterflies and some fool forgets to take pictures :o))
Glad they came back for another day.

Pity we didn't get the four of them, wasn't it.

There were two on the same Dahlia flower yesterday, but they simply refused to have their photos taken. Such a shame. They looked wonderful - so decorative on 'Roxy'! :-)

what have you done with that 'other dahlia'?

Moved the pot across the garden, and put the little stone pillar in its place. Much better. :-)

I knew you wouldn't be able to chop its head off :o))

Thanks! 'My' Peacocks have now decided they prefer Dahlia 'Roxy' so I have the great pleasure of watching them from my seat up by the wall...:-))
