Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)

This Red Admiral was the second butterfly I saw in a sunny patch on the path down to the woods during the cool days in late spring. Another butterfly I would not have seen if it had not been for these unusually cool days.

This butterfly spent more time with its wings in an open display.
