Lorquin's Orange-Tip Admiral

There is not much left of the spiraea's blossom, but this beauty seemed to think so. Frankly I am a bit surprised I got this shot for the jittery creature was in constant motion. Look at the orange tips on Lorquin's Orange-Tip Admiral (Limenitis lorquini). Handsome indeed.

Curious is that no interest was paid to the lilies and this particular spiraea just behind me.
