Flutterby

It's a butterfly! It's got orange stripes! It's... a red admiral!

I saw a bunch of red admiral butterflies! I think they were mating. Mostly they were zipping around way faster than my camera could catch them, but occasionally they’d rest on the ground near me for a minute or two.

(By “I saw a bunch” I mean “I saw more than one.” I’m not sure whether I saw two or twenty.)

  1. Probably about twenty, judging from reports across the northeast and what we’ve seen down here in southeastern PA. Nice shot!

  2. I saw three of these On Sunday, too. Each one was different. Apparently they winter in South Carolina, and migrate to New England for the summer. They only live about three months.
    Nice picture.
