Aug 29, 2013: Red-spotted Purple

The Red-spotted Purple can be found from southern Ontario southward and most of eastern U.S.  This form is conspecific with the White Admiral (northern regions).  The red-orange spots for which this form is named are found below.  Since this butterfly is actually more blue than purple, i feel that it is misnamed. 8/10/13 (Wolf. Oesterreich)
