Butterfly Collection



Today I came across this butterfly.
At first glance from a distance, I thought it was...



... a Painted Lady - Cynthia cardui? But no...



... or a Small Tortoiseshell - Aglais urticae? But no...



... or a Peacock - Inachis io? But no...



... It was a Red Admiral - Vanessa atalanta!

I have learnt a lot this summer! :)

There are few insects more beautiful than butterflies. I've enjoyed your collection this summer.

all of these are beautiful in their own way. I understand about to many fluttering at one time. I am not a fan of enclosed areas that don't allow them to fly free. I saw a fenced area not much bigger than a room in a house and i wanted them to be free. our jungle gardens has a butterfly garden, but it is open to all who want to fly in and fly out. I agree with you, not to many at one time.
