Butterfly for Ark

Quick post to clarify 🙂

Peacock butterfly

Peacock butterfly – The markings are like the ‘eyes’ on the peacock’s tail.

Red admiral 2

Red Admiral.   Book says they migrate to Britain from the Med.   How I wonder.   Catch the ferry or Eurorail?   Surely they don’t fly under their own steam??   And then go back to lay their eggs so the next batch can also migrate to Britain from the Med.   Please explain Oh Wise One :-).

    Crumbs, I had forgotten the Peacock. Been such a long time since I had seen one, and of course you won’t get ;em down here, of course.
    As for the migration issue:
    To quote Santa Claus who once remarked to a policeman why he had crashed his sleigh: “I have no-eyed deer”.
