This little fella dropped by my garden yesterday. I'm reliably informed that it is a Peacock Butterfly. Which edit do you prefer?

Before you critisise someone, walk a mile in their shoes...... At least then you are a mile away and have their shoes!

Lovely colors! Tou even managed to get a wasp;)

Thought a different crop could benefit the butterfly?

Here is my take on the crop; love the shot btw! I've never seen one of these butterflies. Sorry for the photobucket quality.
