Garden journal entry


May 12, 2012. First significant butterfly sighting of the year. On an early morning stroll through the garden, this red admiral (Vanessa atalanta) alighted on a boulder in our curve garden, and sat there sunning itself for a while. Conveniently, I was on my round of garden photography, so I snapped a few pictures. Although I've seen its kind before, red admirals aren't the most common butterflies to visit the Lush Gardens. Judging by the state of its left wing, this one has been flying around for a few days. I'm glad it chose our garden as its hangout for part of its short life span!
