Beautiful Dreamer

HBW everyone! :) WOW July seems like so long ago now doesn't it? lol Here's a little gem I forgot about. I hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful Red Admiral Butterfly in a sea of minty greeen bokeh......

 

Red Admiral

Vanessa atalanta (Linnaeus, 1758)

 

"This familiar, medium-sized (wingspan: 45 to 57 mm) butterfly is easy to recognize, even on the wing. The dark blackish-brown upperside of each wing is crossed by a bright red band, that of the forewing being duplicated on the underside. The tip of the forewing upperside is black with a number of white spots. The hindwing underside is a mottled grey and green when fresh."

 

HBW everyone! :) This photo is not cropped.
