Butterfly observed on a path at Cleadale on Eigg
No interactions present.
Nigel, I think the reason you can't see two pairs of eyes is that your Peacock is holding its front wings so they are swept back over the hind wings, thus covering up the pair of spots that are on the hind wings.
Once butterflies emerge as adults they don't do any more growing, so you can't have a juvenile butterfly (or at least you can, but if it's a juvenile it is either an egg, a caterpillar or a pupa!).
