Here's one of two Red Admirals that were flying around in my front garden tonight after work. When they flew, it was very rapidly. They were hard to keep track of. I was grateful that I finally captured this butterfly in a photo! But next time...maybe it could stop on a pretty flower?
Update: I just did some research on this butterfly, and it does not typically nectar on flowers! It likes rotting fruit, tree sap, and even excrement (including bird droppings). I think I'll put a plate out with a rotten banana on it and see what happens! Note to self: doubtful that a butterfly on excrement would result in a beautiful photo either!!
