Elaine photographed this beautiful peacock on 14/04/18 at Happy Valley, Corfe Mullen.

The beautiful weather that day had obviously brought it out of hibernation, as the flight period for Peacock butterflies is usually July- Sept. In the right weather conditions it is possible to see this butterfly flying twelve months of the year.
