Red-spotted Purple Butterfly

I found this Red-spotted Purple resting on my Oakleaf Hydrangea the other day. It uses Cherry (Prunus) and others for a host.

Been catching up with your photos (finally!). What an abundance of wildlife you enjoy in your lovely garden. I've seen so many butterflies in your pictures that I've never seen before, really enjoying my trip through your garden!
