Red Admiral

One source I use for information about butterflies is Butterflies of Indiana: A Field Guide by Jeffrey E. Belth. In the back there is a section on photographing butterflies, where the author says: "Butterfly photography requires not only patience and technique but also the equipment to record your vision." Well, I've got no patience, no technique, and not very good equipment, but I managed to get a few pictures sufficient to identify this critter in my field as a Red Admiral.
