Peacock butterfly

By Angi_Wallace    
Did you know that these butterflies make a sort of hissing noise when they rub their wings together. This one bashed its wings together on waking this morning and I could hear it, it proceeded to do this about ten times the slammed its wings shut and vibrated its antennae at brief intervals, then flew off. I wonder if this is their usual waking routine and wonder why they make the noise as Ive not heard it from others.
