Caption: Red admiral butterfly (Vanessa atalanta) feeding on a Rudbeckia flower. Red admirals, like most butterflies, feed on nectar, a sweet liquid produced by some flowers. The red admiral butterfly is a migrant, found in Britain mostly during the summer months after flying north from the Mediterranean. It is also found in North America, and Asia. This footage was obtained in August.
