Red Admiral or Vanessa Atalanta Butterfly

Captured video of this beautiful butterfly at Lettuce Lake Park on May 17, 2009. The Red Admiral or Vanessa atalanta (previously also known as Pyrameis atalanta) is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe, Asia and North America. The species is resident only in warmer areas, but migrates north in spring, and sometimes again in autumn.
