Red Admiral Butterfly

The Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) is a common and regular migrant to the UK which in mild winters also survives here (primarily in the south of England) so some of the population are from resident stock. This large black butterfly with a flash of vivid orange-red across its forewings and around the edge of its rear wings and a splatter of white spots towards its wing-tips is a common sight in our gardens during mid-late summer. They are often found nectaring on garden Buddleias Michaelmas Daisy.
