Select Image or Title to See in a Larger Format
The White Admiral Butterfly appears in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. The appearance usually occurs in mid-summer. Most often, the White Admiral appears in woodlands and along streams and creeks. This particular example appeared near the West Canada Creek in Herkimer, New York.
The name "Admiral" derives from "admirable" due to the butterfly's beauty. The genus name, "Limentis" derives from the Latin "limen" meaning threshold. "Arthemis" refers to the mythological Greek goddess of the wilderness and sister of Apollo.
