The Red Admiral or Vanessa atalanta (previously also known as Pyrameis atalanta) is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe, Asia and North America. The species is resident only in warmer areas, but migrates north in spring, and sometimes again in autumn. This large butterfly is identified by its striking dark brown, red and black wing pattern. The caterpillar feeds on nettles, and the adult drinks from flowering plants like the Buddleia and overripe fruit. In northern Europe, it is one of the last butterflies to be seen before winter sets in, often feeding on the pale fire of ivy flowers on sunny days. The Red Admiral is also known to hibernate, re-emerging individuals showing prominently darker colourings than first brood subjects. The butterfly also flies on sunny winter days, especially in southern Europe. In North America, the Red Admiral generally has two broods from March through October. Most of North America must be recolonized each spring by southern migrants, but this species over-winters in south Texas.

La Vanessa atalanta LINNAEUS, 1758, nota anche come Vulcano, è una farfalla della famiglia delle Ninfalidi, diffusa nelle zone temperate di Europa, Asia e Nord America. Questa grande farfalla si riconosce dal vivace disegno color marrone scuro, bianco e rosso delle sue ali. Il bruco si nutre di foglie di ortica, mentre gli esemplari adulti prediligono le infiorescenze di piante come la Buddleja e la frutta in avanzata fase di maturazione.
Questa specie vive abitualmente in zone temperate, ma effettua delle migrazioni verso nord in primavera e occasionalmente in autunno.
È una delle ultime specie di farfalle avvistabili in nord Europa prima dell'arrivo dell'inverno, spesso mentre si posa sui fiori dell'edera nelle giornate di sole.
La Vanessa atalanta è anche nota per essere capace di cadere in stato di ibernazione; la colorazione degli esemplari che riemergono da questo stato è notevolmente più scura rispetto a quella dei nati in primavera. La farfalla, specialmente nelle zone dell'Europa meridionale, è comunque in grado di alzarsi in volo anche d'inverno se il tempo è bello.

Hello Roberto,
Today the weather here is not so good, but yesterday I saw these butterflies in my garden. And I made some pictures of them.
This is a very good one. Excellent sharp details and beautiful colours in a good POV and composition.

Ciao Roberto,
una splendida immagine di Vulcano dalla livrea sgargiante ripresa con ottima definizione e piacevoli tonalità calde, bellissima luce e ottima composizione. E' una farfalla che s'incontra spesso, facile da fotografare, ma molto difficile ottenere una bella immagine per i colori contrastanti e "vellutati".
Grazie e complimenti
Buona settimana
Maurizio
