From a distance...the Red Admiral

This little beauty was about 8ft away...this first one is not cropped...

this one is cropped.  When I worked at the orchard, the Red Admiral would land on my arm at least a few times during the picking season.

I wonder why they call it that, as it's an orangish color? What a beauty she is.
