Peacock Butterfly, Is Summer Close?

A Peacock butterfly basking in the sun, Bayhurst Woods.

I was out and about recently and spied this Peacock butterfly at rest, I managed too get four frames off before it flew away. It’s bright markings, which include a set of ‘eyes’ with which too scare of would be predators, stood out amongst the wood floor and I had a sensation of ‘summer’s close’ as I took my pictures.
