Artist's Description

The New Zealand Red Admiral (Vanessa gonerilla) is a butterfly that is endemic to New Zealand. The Māori name is kahukura which means red cloak. The Red Admiral is a member of the family Nymphalidae, the sub-family Nymphalinae as well as the tribe Nymphalini. Red Admirals occur most frequently during summer and may live for several months, they overwinter as adults so can be seen on warm winters days. They are long lived, surviving up to 6 months in the summer, and perhaps 9 months for those who over-winter. Spring is here when the Red Cloak visits our garden. Our first butterfly for the season. A small clip on the Red Admiral feeding.
