Red admirals and dandelions

On a windy, warm spring day, we're suddenly inundated with both dandelions and butterflies--mostly Red Admirals.  I don't ever remember seeing so many butterflies in our yard at one time.  You stand in the grass and feel like you're in a butterfly conservatory.

Yes, we are in Eastern Ontario and they are swarming everywhere in our condo area. Yesterday my son netted five before I told him he should release them. Thank you for helping us identify them. I'm working on a post about them too. :)
