Red Admirals, Bay Shore, NY
I know you prefer current photos (as they are found) but it’s still too cold here in NY for most of the insects to come out. I am waiting eagerly for them to show up! Here are a couple of Red Admiral photos from last summer(2007) when they came to feed and hang out on our shrubs around the house. If you can use them, please do. Otherwise, enjoy the photos.
Though it is too cold in New York for Red Admirals right now, they are flying in our own Mt Washington, Los Angeles garden. Readers in warmer climates might benefit from your images. The open winged photo demonstrates the typical sunning posture of this frisky species.
