Lorquin’s Admiral

The Lorquin’s Admiral is one of those butterflies you see flittering through the air all summer. Flying nearby but not to near heading left then heading right but one you half-heartedly chase around while eon the trail hoping they will land close enough for a halfway descent photo and if they do land and you chose not to have the wrong lens on your camera it will be a photo well rewarded. This was one of those days we were rewarded. We spotted The Lorquins perched near the top of a small pine tree and as soon as we could get the shutter clicked they flew down to a small streamed for a quick drink.

We always like when butterflies give you both a wings open and wings closed photo for identification and reference purposes.

Isn’t amazing how many colors butterflies eyes come in?

    Such awesome photos of weidemeyer’s admirals! (Lorquin’s admirals have orange apical patches and a brown background color with cream bands and fly several hundred miles to the west in Central Idaho.)
