Great shot!
Interesting this Limenitis got a common name of "Admiral". Whilst it is fairly normal critters of the new world vaguely reminescent of an european species got a comon name suggesting this is a close relative, Lorquin's Admiral reminds far more of the genus Apatura, our Emperor Butterflies than having anything Vanessa-like.
