Red Admiral party

One morning last week I found five Red Admiral butterflies on the purple coneflower. Of course, I was running late and didn’t have time to grab the camera. That evening three butterflies returned.

three red admirals, each on its own purple coneflower within 3 feet of each other

Two of them danced on one past-peak flower and then separated.

one butterfly on each side of the flower, the left with open wings and the right with closed wings

same two butterflies, both with wings closed, one climbing up from the left and the other facing left, their antennae overlapping

one butterfly facing left on a flower, the second a mirror image behind it
