Red Admiral

Red Admiral

This lovely Red Admiral butterfly has been hanging around my Echinacea plants for the past couple of days.  However, every time I grab the camera it seems to see me coming and fly away.  Just a moment ago, it flew onto the window frame right beside me and posed for a moment.

The episode reminds me of the only time I saw a Monarch butterfly in Edmonton.  It was on my Russian Olive tree.  I flew out the door with my camera and chased it around the yard.  The photos were terrible and none of them looked as if they had a butterfly in them — but I swear it was a Monarch!  I know my butterflies!

I need to take a bunch of photos of my yard.  I have such pretty things blooming right now.  The constant hail and rainstorms have had their way with my garden this summer, but it’s still quite beautiful.  Now if I can only get out and clean up without getting a thousand mosquito bites.  If it’s not one thing . . .

  1. I wonder if the Gnome will be coming out of hibernation soon?
