The other day I noticed this lovely peacock butterfly. When I came near it closed it's wings as can be seen here. As soon as I moved on it opened the wings back up again. Was it just being shy or recent research documented on he web seems to suggest that a butterfly closes it wings to signify “move off and leave me alone”. http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/13573037.
After a few minutes wait the butterfly opened it wings back up again as can be seen here.
Regardless butterflies make fantastic subjects for images and some more recent shots can be seen here
