Did you know?
The European Peacock are more commonly known simply as the Peacock butterfly is found in Europe and temperate Asia as far east as Japan.
It should not be confused or classified with the “American peacocks” in the genus Anartia; these are not close relatives of the Eurasian species.
The Peacock butterfly is resident in much of its range, often wintering in buildings or trees.
It therefore often appears quite early in spring.
So to me, it has beauty but is fragile as it can be caught by bad weather in early spring.

beauty found in early spring
fragile bad weather
blown away in strong winds
