Admiral of the Sky
This past weekend I had the opportunity to travel up to my cottage for an extended weekend and I was really able to slow down and enjoy my surroundings. As I commonly do, I walk around or paddle around the lake in search of a new discovery. I though I would share one of my greatest discoveries of this past weekend: the White Admiral butterfly
This is a picture of a bay on my lake that I paddle along.
The White Admiral is a species of the North American brush-footed butterflies. Ranging from almost coast to coast this butterfly can be found on forest edges and along watercourses.
Notice the band of white on their wings, which is where the name originates.
Have you seen this butterfly before? Let me here your stories or just tell me what you think!
