Butterfly Garden by Mike MacDonald

White Admiral

[Admiral picture] White Admirals lay eggs on birch, poplar, willow and hawthorn. On the wing from mid-June to mid-August, they take nectar from Centaurea, knapweed and thistles. One of our commonest and most colourful species, it is sometimes called the Banded Purple.
