Weidemeyer's Admiral - 2
This beautiful, large butterfly could easily be mistaken for a swallowtail, but the Weidemeyer's admiral is another member of the brushfoot family (same as the monarch) and is mostly associated with the forested areas near streams in the Rocky Mountains and American Great Basin where it can easily find its larval host trees: aspens chokecherries and western serviceberries. This one was found high in the mountains near Aspen, Colorado in the White River National Forest.
