There's about 15 Peacock posts over the recent month (so far). Thetford 26th July, South Wales 30th July, The Lakes 6 Aug., Edinburgh 5th. Elgin 8th and mine here, the furthest north yet, 7th August.
An incredibly beautiful butterfly, recognised by most people.
They are never here in numbers and I have only ever seen two at the same time once, but they reproduce, using my well-nurtured nettle bed. Photographed on Golden Marjoram, a heady perfume for an exotic butterfly.
