Artist's Description

The butterfly depicted on this photo is called Peacock butterfly. It gets its name from the large and colourful eyespots on its wings, which are very similar to those on the tail of the peacock.

This species is quite common where I live and it’s not rare to find these butterflies flying frenetically in orchards or gardens.

I shot this one last Summer with an ordinary lense (I mean not a macro lense) precisely when it was pumping nectar from a flower of my garden.
