Peacock butterfly

First proper day off work today. The weather was a bit mixed so I took myself off out this afternoon to see what Longton Brickcroft nature reserve had for me.

So many different types of bee's and far more butterflies than the last time I went. Quite a few damselflies too ....... and ...... the biggest dragonfly ever!!!! it was like a small bird!! but it just never stopped flying around and I had no chance of capturing it ........ good reason to make another visit though :)

I was really pleased to find this peacock butterfly which was more than happy to pose fully open for this lovely shot.

This reached no 8 on the popular page :D
Beautiful capture.
