Butterflies have been in short supply for the past 3 years over here in Böblingen, Germany where we currently live.  So we were happy to spot this fella, which I believe is a Peacock butterfly (aka Inachis io, male), right here in our own patio garden.

We really love to watch the beauty and delicateness of these "flying flowers".  They are magnificent.
