Peacock

Peacock (Inachis io): One of the early season butterflies, this iconic butterfly is often found basking in the sun on paths or bushes. It lays eggs on nettles in spring, where the black, spiky caterpillars form large nests before they disperse and pupate. It hibernates for over winter, emerging after warm periods in March and April. The next generation emerges in late summer.
