Butterfly sighting

I just saw a red admiral last week in Door County, too. Then this evening near dusk as the light was intense in the back garden, I saw several red admirals that appeared to be fighting for territory. I didn't realize they did that until I read about it. They're very acrobatic butterflies! This one kept coming back to the same perch, so I was able to capture a photo of him.
