    This beauty is taken on an off-shore island. The Peacock pansy is one of 4 pansy butterflies found here.

    Now that you are mentioning there are four "pansy" butterflies on that one island you were on to find this peacock pansy, could you tell us what "pansy" butterflies are and what other butterfly families there are? Maybe? In a few short words????? Just for me?????? Please! ;)

    Thanks for the comments. LaFoto, the Peacock Pansy belongs to a very large group of butterflies in the Nymphalidae family. It is in the sub family of Nymphalinae and the scientific name is Junonia almana javana. The other three 'pansies' also have the first name Junonia. I will be posting them soon.
    The commonest one is the Chocolate Pansy, the rarest, the Grey Pansy and the most beautiful, the Blue Pansy.
