Peacock Butterfly

Watercolour painting of a peacock butterfly by Helen Frost Rich.

Peacock Butterflies are easily the most recognisable of all our native species here in the UK. They are surprisingly strong fliers, and can glide as well as flutter. Often among the first to greet the spring sunshine, they seek out buddleia, and their caterpillars eat nettles.
