Caption: Peacock butterfly (Inachis io) on a flower. This butterfly is found in a range of habitats throughout Europe and temperate Asia. The caterpillars feed mainly on stinging nettles, and the butterfly is found wherever the plants grow, from urban areas to high mountainsides. The large eyespots on its wings may be flashed to deter predators. Photographed in Finland.
