White Peacock gets help
May 9, 2010
Hi Bugman. I took these white peacock pictures in October when I suddenly had about 200 of them nectaring and mating in my yard all at once. It was a gorgeous frenzy. The one in the photo had a malformed wing and was moving sluggishly. So, I put my hand in front of it and it climbed onto my finger. I took it from flower to flower for a couple of minutes and it nectared. Shortly after that it got an energy rush and starting flying around quickly with the others. Hope you like the photos. I can’t wait for the fall party this year!

Your account of rescuing this White Peacock, Anartia jatrophae, is quite cheering. The White Peacock is well represented on BugGuide.
