A successful breeding year for Yellow Admiral butterflies

 Twenty Yellow Admiral butterflies hatched out of their chrysalis this autumn. A pleasing result for the first year. The butterfly nettle was grown in an urban garden. The netting was to protect them from the paper wasps that continually stalk the caterpillars. 
Our objective is to get the red admirals to breed. The reds are a lot rarer in our district although they have been seen.
