 My Mulberries have been quite the draw this year, especially the ones that have fallen on the ground.  I have had many butterflies coming to eat the fermenting fruit.  This one is new to me.  It is a Red Spotted Purple butterfly and they are supposed to be fairly common but this is the first time I have ever, knowingly at least, seen one, for sure the first time to capture one.

Just as a reminder, there is a page on the Blog of the Butterflies of Kansas that I have seen and photographed if you are looking for help in IDing one.  I have updated it with this new butterfly.  😊
