Red Admiral Butterfly (Vanessa atalanta)

Watercolor and colored pencil

The Red Admiral butterfly, with its dark wings and distinctive red bands, is one of the most well known of the European butterflies. Easy to spot during summer months, it is actually a migrant to the British Isles, though there are now small resident populations which overwinter in southern areas where temperatures can sustain them. An adaptable species, it can be found in most habitat types throughout Britain.
