Hi Daniel~
These are three photos from last week of a Red Admiral visiting English bluebells in the morning sun. I often find several Red Admirals in the company of a group of Painted Ladies, and it’s my understanding that they are of the same genus, Vanessa. I like the idea that they’re fraternizing! I’ll send along one additional photo from two years ago – it’s special only because it shows the Red Admiral with its wings closed.
All the best,

Red Admiral and Painted Ladies on English Blue Bells

Dear Dori,
Your Red Admiral photos are positively gorgeous and we have decided to make them into our Mother’s Day greeting.  Happy Mother’s Day all you Moms out there.
