I have taken a picture of a butterfly that was eating my sunflowers - do you know its name?<link snipped>
I think its name is Gorgone Checkerspo Butterfly
..yep...Small Tortoiseshell...common in Ireland.
Really - some one said it was a red Admiral - thanks
could be called something else too...i just googled 'butterflies in Ireland' and i'm sure i pulled it up...i'll get for you.
here's the link - it's the first pic....i think it is the same one you posted.http://www.irishbutterflies.com/butterfly_species.html
red admiral looks different .... there's also a pic of it on the same site....red admiral pic below.
this is the gorgone checkerspot..supposed to be n.american species...similar colours
this is the one Irish is looking for...
