Vanessa Atalanta = Red Admiral
The Red Admiral butterfly has nothing to do with the navy but is corrupted Red Admirable. It is widespread from N. America through Europe, Asia and N. Africa. Although common in Britain and Ireland in almost
any habitat from mountain to seashore, it is in fact a seasonal migrant. The adult butterflies have a tendency to hibernate in exposed places and so very few manage to overwinter in Britain. Those that do, survive mainly in ivy.
They breed early in the year in Spain and N. Africa. Those adults and their offspring continue to move northwards with the improving weather, breeding as they go, sometimes reaching Britain in small numbers as early as March.
There are often large numbers of butterflies here in the autumn through to October and November. Their numbers are increasing.
Each newly arrived male defends its chosen territory vigorously. The eggs are laid singly on the upper leaves of nettles - usually in the middle of large patches and the female takes no further care of them.
Each female can lay two broods in a season. After about 7 days the larva emerges and immediately folds a leaf together to make 'tent', securing the edges with silk. Within this structure the young caterpillar can feed in relative
safety. Several leaf tents are made as the caterpillar grows, shedding its skin, each progressively larger. The spiny caterpillars come in two color forms - black and a yellow green, both with yellow markings down each flank.
When fully grown the caterpillar chews part way through a nettle stem causing it to fall over. It then spins together several of these, now downward pointing, leaves to create a shelter in which to pupate.
This is the chrysalis stage. The adults emerge from the chrysalis, which is patterned with metallic gold spots, in approximately 12 days as the imago or adult butterfly. Late in the season, any flower-rich habitat is likely to attract
the butterfly, including gardens where buddleias, stonecrops, and Michaelmas-daisies are all popular with Red Admirals. Favor orchards where fruit is rotting on the ground.
