Thanks Carol! We actually have quite a variety of butterflies still active here right now. Some of which I hadn't seen at all during the summer. Including these red admirals. It is nice to see. :)

Lovely series. I spotted 2 of these on the flowers while I was mowing the lawn today. Nice to still see butterflies this late in the season.
