Red-Spotted Purple

Red Spotted Purple, Limenitis Arthemis, Top

Here is an incredible beauty. Limenitis Arthemis, the Red-Spotted Purple (what a very straightforward name). Sadly the photo can’t convey just how beautiful these butterflies are in person. The light blue on the wings is actually HIGHLY iridescent, making these butterflies quite shiny.
