Peacock butterfly (Inachis io)
A spectacular resident butterfly, common throughout the British Isles except for northern Scotland. They hibernate over the winter and lay their eggs on stinging nettles. The underwings are in complete contrast to the upperwings, being very dark, almost black, and beautifully camouflaged to resemble tree bark.
