Red Admiral

Tuesday morning I found a dead butterfly in our garage. The picture isn’t great, but I took it inside later to get a better picture of it with my macro lens for the iPhone.

The picture does show the checkered black and white antennae.

Unfortunately, when I got back inside after mowing, a naughty kitty or two had been up on the table and ATE my specimen! So I didn’t get picture of the underside or get to look at it under magnifier.

The Butterflies of Indiana does not show this butterfly in our county, but it must have flown in from one of the three surrounding counties that are within two miles of the property.
