Artist's Description

From our garden in Romania.

The Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe, Asia and North America. The Red Admiral has a 45–50 mm (1.8–2.0 in) wing span.2 The species is resident only in warmer areas, but migrates north in spring, and sometimes again in autumn.

The caterpillar feeds on nettles, and the adult drinks from flowering plants like the Buddleia and overripe fruit.
