Red Admiral


My first butterfly picture ! It’s a Red Admiral butterfly and there was like 6 of them fluttering around enjoying the dandelions ! I got a bunch of this little guy (?) since he was being the most cooperative. I had to be within a foot or so of him to get this and most of the other ones weren’t having any of that “big creature creeping toward them” business at all, but not this one. Just went about his feeding paying me little mind. Moving creatures aren’t my specialty, so I am very happy and proud to capture this :)

    This is just lovely, love the vividness of the color. And to get so close, too, it's impressive! Butterflies give me a lot of trouble sometimes, almost never let me get that close.
