Information about the Red Admiral Butterfly:
The Red Admiral Butterfly is a commonly seen butterfly native to moist meadows, open fields and well-watered urban areas in temperate Europe, Asia and North America. It has a wingspan of 1.8–2.0 inches (45–50 mm.) The caterpillar feeds on nettles, and the adult drinks from flowering plants like the Buddleia and overripe fruit. In northern Europe, it is one of the last butterflies to be seen before winter sets in, often feeding on the flowers of ivy on sunny days. The Red Admiral is also known to hibernate, re-emerging individuals showing prominently darker colorings than first brood subjects. The butterfly also flies on sunny winter days, especially in southern Europe. In North America, the Red Admiral generally has two broods from March through October. Most of North America must be re-colonized each spring by southern migrants, but this species over-winters in south Texas. Red Admirals are considered to be people-friendly butterflies that will approach and perch on human beings.
