Red Admiral Butterfly
A few days ago as I was hanging laundry I noticed this butterfly flitting around the scented geranium bush. It took quite a few snaps of the shutter to get a clear photo of this beauty, but I was helped by the fact that it really liked the scented geranium--it kept returning to the same bush for nearly two hours. Today, Younger Son found a picture of a Red Admiral Butterfly in one of his nature books--a perfect match. We have officially identified our first butterfly.
