Lorquin's admiral

Limenitis lorquini


Easily recognized by the orange tips on the forewings and the white spots. I often find these butterflies sitting on vegetation on sunny perches along creek beds, until another butterfly comes by, then it chases it away.


Spotted on vegetation next to the Umtanum creek.
