A beautiful butterfly captured on our shrubs this morning. I don't know the type of butterfly it is - could be a Monarch, but not sure. Any suggestions from exerts as to what kind it is would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for all your kind comments on past daily photos. Have a super evening.
Update: Papa and Chika identified this lovely butterfly as a Red Emperor. Thanks to both.

Oops - thanks to Ethan for correcting my comment. This is a Red Admiral butterfly. Even though Papa and Chika gave me the correct name too, I confusted Admirals and Emperors. I knew it was something special in the butterfly world, but got my names mixed up. I appreciate everyone for commenting.
