Red Admirals

The Red Admiral is really pretty with the wings open, but I think it is outstanding with the wings closed... look at all those colors... just beautiful!

Yes, indeed, red admirals have pretty coloring on their undersides - kind of reminds me of paisley!

Beautiful picture!

Thanks Sherry!
I think this one was newly eclosed as there was another very close but it was much much duller in color and the wings were a bit ragged.. which was funny because I spent all last week chasing one down so I could get a pic and then these two come right to me..... now if only I could catch that spice/black swallowtail I have been seeing... I swear it is playing with me :)
