Daily Images | Peacock Butterfly

Daily Images – the Peacock Butterfly is an impressive creature which loves the nectar from my Lantana in North Cyprus. It is relatively common in the UK too. The eyes on the wings mean that, along with the shape of the head, when the butterfly is confronted face on by a predator it can easily be mistaken for face of a bird. Add to this the fact that the butterfly can make a hissing sound by rubbing its wings together and all together the Peacock Butterfly is pretty safe from predators.
