Observation - Small Tortoiseshell - (Underwing) - UK and Ireland. Description: This was a case of stupidity! This butterfly was seen on the edge of the internal garage door and I took photos assuming it to be a Peacock which seem quite common in our garden. I happily worked round it for a couple of hours while I cleaned the garage,

This was a case of stupidity! This butterfly was seen on the edge of the internal garage door and I took photos assuming it to be a Peacock which seem quite common in our garden. I happily worked round it for a couple of hours while I cleaned the garage, only to find it had disappeared without me identifying it.
It looks Peacock shaped - the eyes in photos 3 and 4 look Peacock but previous sightings have been much darker than this.
I look forward to confirmation or alternatives.
