Butterfly sighting

From the 21st through the 26th the blossoms of the 12 foot diameter hydrangia in my yard were covered with Red Admirals from late morning until almost dusk. They were so numerous that there were often two and sometimes three to a bloom. This happened in 2001 as well. It becomes a living shrub and is marvelous to see.
