Caption

Close-up of the wing of the butterfly Nymphalis io (Nymphalidae), showing the coloured scales which cover the wing surface. Small scales overlap like shingles, each with an individual colour, and together these produce the magnificent colours and patterns of the butterfly wing. Nymphalis io is also known as the European peacock butterfly. It can be seen flying in early spring, since it spends the winter as an adult and is coaxed out from winter hiding places by the first warm rays of sunshine. Magnification: x100 at 35mm size.
