The European Peacock Butterfly

After I opened the window to air the apartment last week, this beautiful European peacock butterfly came sitting under the window. Isn’t he absolutely gorgeous?

His official name is Inachus Io, the the name is derived from Greek mythology, meaning Io, the daughter of Inachus.
