A Lorquin’s Admiral lands on a sunny leaf where it appears to be soaking in the warm sun rays.
Lorquin Admirals often perch high in trees, spreading their wings to sun themselves. From these perches, the males are also territorial and often dash out after other butterflies, returning to their favorite perches between battles.
