Andrew Rogers Electrical, 176 Nottingham Road, Ripley, Derbyshire, DE5 3AY

After

3

years

of

searching

nettles,

I

finally

found

a

large

brood

of

peacock

butterfly

larvae;

by

accident!

I

turned

around

and

there

they

were!

After

successfully

rearing

ten

spiky

black caterpillars, here are a few pics of the butterflies that resulted. . .

My Peacock butterflies from summer 2019!
Catching some sun at 1pm mid July On the rim of plant pot - shredded food plant below! Preparing for take off! Just hatched - on fresh nettle growth. Freshly hatched peacock butterfly and pupa
