Good morning everyone! Today we have the “White Admiral” butterfly to enjoy. They are a dark blue/black in color with red, blue and white spots and white bars on its wings. It is one of our larger butterflies with a wingspan of 3 to 3 1/2 inches (7.5 to 8.75cm). Normally they show up for us sometime in June and will keep flying around until about early September.
They will have one or two broods per summer. They overwinter as caterpillars that hide under leaf litter on the ground under trees. Have a wonderful day everyone and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
