A Red Admiral Butterfly

I was walking around the backyard, looking for things to take pictures of.


This red admiral butterfly landed on a daisy fleabane right in front of me. I’ve seen an occasional sulphur butterfly in the

back–back of our yard … this was my first non-sulphur butterfly this spring (March 30).

128 red

This picture of a red admiral was taken in a previous year. Our butterfly numbers are low probably because we’ve had a wet cooler-than-normal spring.
