Peacock Butterfly (Inachis io)
 

One of Europe's most colourful and splendid butterflies. The pupae hatch within about 2 weeks.   The butterflies can be kept for a few days in a cage with flowers for nectar, then released into the wild.

The last mild winter woke hibernating butterflies at a time when there was no nectar and many Peacocks and Small Tortoiseshells perished, making them quite scarce this summer. You can help boost your local population by hatching and releasing these Peacock butterflies.
