Limenitis arthemis, the red-spotted purple or white admiral, is a North American butterfly species in the cosmopolitan genus Limenitis. It has been studied for its evolution of mimicry, and for the several stable hybrid wing patterns within this nominal species; it is one of the most dramatic examples of hybridization between non-mimetic and mimetic populations.

My first of the year, seen in Blean Woods, Kent

The underwing markings of the White Admiral have to be one of the most beautiful of all our butterfly species imo.

Limenitis camilla, the white admiral, is a butterfly found in woodland throughout southern Britain and much of Europe.

 

Adult white admirals have black wings with white bands. The contrasting colours help to break up the outline of the wing, camouflaging it from predators. They have a wingspan of approximately 60–65 mm and have a distinctive, elegant flight consisting of short periods of wing beats, followed by long glides.

 

The white admiral feeds on bramble blossom and honeydew and the female will lay its eggs singly on wisps of honeysuckle growing in dense woodland.

One of my favourite butterflies, to watch the graceful flight as it glides from tree to floor and back up again is something very special :)

A graceful butterfly of sunlit woodland glades, the White Admiral has an elegance of flight only equalled by the Purple Emperor. Traditionally a butterfly of mature broadleaved woodlands, its range has been expanding and it may also be found in mixed conifer and deciduous plantations. It thrives in hot summers and can often be seen feeding on Bramble flowers, as well as salt from moist soil and dung. Its tolerance of shade has helped in its expansion, particularly since the cessation of coppicing and tidying up woodlands. (source: Butterflies of Great Britain and Ireland)

It is so dry up in the Ajloun Forest right now, but still beautiful walking... late in the morning, I spotted two Jays, two Blackbirds, some LBBs, a lizard and a snake but there is not much singing and chirping... I even found a farmer's irrigation seep that had bird tracks. I staked it out for 40 minutes with no bites... but late in a hot sunny morning might have been a part of that too. What I did see was one butterfly... thought it was a Painted Lady but something was not right about that as I shuffled closer... turns out to be a Southern White Admiral.

 

Katbeh-Bader, et. al, in 2004, "the Butterflies of Jordan" writes this is a "rare" sighting." It was beating, gliding, beating, gliding, in a space between two trees perhaps 8 m (26 ft) apart and landing on this one low shrub every minute or so... it was very active and hard for me to hold up the gear and wait for it to perch again... anyway, success and a very cool sighting... :-)

Mimic of the poisonous Pipevine butterfly. Considered by some as the most beautiful butterfly in the area.

 

Uncommon and infrequently encountered. Shares sub species status with the White Admiral butterfly.

Depending on which authority one references this is a well marked subspecies of the white admiral or the species "red-spotted admiral".

Being a rookie at Butterfly ID, I am pretty sure, but not positive that this is a White Admiral. If it is indeed, it is funny, that in all of my previous captures I have caught them with their wings open so this is my first profile shot with wings closed.

 

Unlike the Cabbage White that I posted two days ago, it seems that these guys like to rest with their wings open.

 

Although the sharpness is not where I would have liked it to be, I am very happy with the angle of light that seems to give dimension to the veins on the wing. Stabilization will work side to side and up and down, but not back and forth, and I am guessing that i was not super stable in the back and forth of this shot. Still, it was nice to get a shot of the underside of it's wings, as I think it is quite a striking looking little flyer.

the red admiral seems to be much more common, so it was a treat to see this white admiral !

Seen at Victoria Park, in Truro, Nova Scotia, Canada.

My guess is this is a White Admiral butterfly

 

Happy Crazy Tuesday! 😀

I went out early today to avoid the heat and after seeing this White Admiral i'm glad i did :)

One of at least 7 i have seen over the last few days in a couple of local locations :)

Tonight I will start a small series on butterflies. I really don't have much of a selection to choose from, but will post the best of what I do have.

 

Having said that, I am happy with what I have, but certainly not ecstatic Perhaps, I am being to hard on myself or expecting too much, the first image I got where I could see individual little pieces that make up the wings simply thrilled me, but have not been able to get that kind of detail throughout, and maybe it is asking for too much.

 

I hope to improve my collection this season, and look forward to using an actual macro lens to see if I have better luck than with the 100-400 zoom. Only time will tell.

 

Anyway, I will try my best to ID these images, but if you see that I have something wrong, by all means let me know.
