The Red Admiral

I guess he thought he was a hummingbird. :-) But really he's a Red Admiral butterfly. He did seem to like the sugar water, and he kept coming back for more. Rather pretty, isn't he?

(Click to enlarge.)

Oh, yeah... Willow 'n Wispy really enjoyed watching him. And no, he did not fall into the container of water. ;-)

I love this set of pictures. I'm making a red and aqua quilt top, so the color combination on your feeder is really stunning.

Yeah, Sarah... he (she?) really was quite stunning. Though I've seen a lot of those kinds of butterflies before, I've never had such a nice closeup look before, nor bothered to find out what they were called.

That sounds like a great color combination for a quilt, Cindy. Wish I could see more of your creations!
