I had a new visitor and have never seen this species of butterfly in 15 years of having this flower garden
and having changed out many perennials in the garden.

Will someone tell me what this one is
It was exciting to see a butterfly that is not normally seen in my area

The butterflys are enjoying the Buzz variety of butterfly bushes...all new this year.

Hurray! Sheri! I agree, that's a beautiful Red Admiral! The last time I saw one was in 2014.
