Red Admiral

Vanessa atalanta


Red admirals often claim & vigorously defend a territory against other males of their own kind, choosing exposed hilltops & tree trunks as lookout points. In the northern part of its range, in some years this species has been plentiful, while in other years, almost absent. This has led lepidopterists to speculate that this species may be migratory.
