Hi — Here’s a butterfly that I don’t see too often — a Red Admiral, I believe.

Hi Susan,
You are correct with your Red Admiral identification. These are seemingly fearless butterflies that frequently return to the same location to soak in the sun. For some reason, in our Mt. Washington, Los Angeles garden, they frequented the green hose in the front yard. When we bought a black hose, it was no longer attractive.
