Red Admiral

Vanessa atalanta


Black butterfly with bold orange and white markings as shown.


Residential neighborhood on the fringe of several acres of degraded shortgrass prairie. Immediate habitat was a grove of elm trees, with sunflower, yucca, asters, and grasses in understory.


Surprisingly crisp specimen for so late in the season.
