  4. Wow, that's a beautiful shot! It's not one of those storm-causing butterflies, is it? ;P

  5. Yes, it's a Tagpfauenauge, Latin name Inachis Io. OK, OK, that translates as the European Peacock Butterfly, and no, I don't think its the "Chaos Butterfly" the wing edges lack the Mandelbrot patterns ...
