DescriptionThe European Peacock Butterfly (Inachis io) feeding on Buddleia davidii flower in my garden. This spectacular butterfly inhabits Temperate Europe and Asia where it can be commonly found in woods, fields, meadows, pastures, parks, and gardens, and from lowlands up to 8,200 feet elevation. Striking eyespots and gaudy colours make the Peacock an unmistakable butterfly. When resting with its wings closed, the cryptic coloration of the undersides and the jagged wing margins make the species look like dead leaves or bark, affording it excellent camourflage. If startled, a resting Peacock will flash open its wings, the sudden revelation of the eyespots scaring off potential predators.
Stephen Walton, Yorkshire, England. Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement Hello, and thank you for visiting Imagekind and my galleries. I am married with two children and live in Yorkshire, England. I have been taking photographs since the 1970's when I started using a Zenit EM 35mm camera. I discovered digital imaging in 2004 and I am now the proud owner of a Nikon D300. I particularly enjoy taking photographs of landscapes, butterflies and flowers and try to make my images as colorful as possible.
I Utilize Hi Dynamic Range and Tone Mapping to give an Artistic feel to my Photographs.
My Photography is Represented by Art Licensing International in Vermont, USA and Brevon Art Gallery in Doncaster, England.
