Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)

The Red Admiral's bland underwings unfold to reveal a vibrant surprise, bold black and vivid orange. This butterfly lives all around the world, from the United States to New Zealand. 

In Israel, you can find the Red Admiral butterfly right at home at Ramat Hanadiv, a park about an hour from Tel Aviv.
