Vanessa atalanta

Vanessa atalanta РRed Admiral

The Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) is commonly seen in our gardens, but although it is a resdient, most of those seen are migrants from the continent. In my southeast location some are likely to survive over winter and so breed. The one below was taken in August and the only one this year (2013) I’ve seen in some months.
