White Admiral

Limenitis arthemis arthemis

Description:

A beautiful dark brown/black butterfly with a bright white stripe on both fore-wings and hind-wings. Also some blue stripes and red/orange spots on the borders of the wings. This is a larger butterfly, very flashy and eye-catching. (2 1/4 - 4 inches (5.7 - 10.1 cm) wingspan)

Habitat:

Found in deciduous and evergreen forests with a large number of Aspen and Birch. Eats sap, rotting fruit, carrion, dung and occasionally nectar from flowers.

Notes:

This butterfly fluttered lazily around as I photographed it. It seemed somewhat curious, but didn't get too close.
