Red Admiral?
Could you tell me, is this a red admiral? I took the photo in Boring, Oregon, just outside of Portland. Thanks!

Hi Leah,
We are excited this is NOT a Red Admiral. It is a Lorquin’s Admiral, Limenitis lorquini, and it ranges in the Pacific Northwest. It is a new species for our site, hence the excitement.
