Milbert's Tortoiseshell (Conflict - Nymphalis milberti or Aglais milbe)
These brilliant orange banded butterflies are one-of-a-kind. They are common in moist woodlands searching for nectar from various flowers or enjoying the sweet juices of over-ripened fruit or tree sap. Males frequently perch on logs or in shrubs throughout the afternoon to watch for females. Planting Nettle will invited this spectacular butterfly into your garden, but keep still because the Milbert’s Tortoiseshell is quick to dart away when disturbed.
