Well enough - good shots. In North America we call this butterfly a Red Admiral (I don't know the history of the name, but I am sure that nothing political was intended or implied!)

Haha, I liked the pointer : )) Still, I'm afraid there could be, but with an altogether different 'signified' of course, rather related with the expansionist policy and the idea of superiority of the colonial period : )
Thank you for the kind feedback.

Thank you for your kind interest and feedback. I appreciate the knowledge of you guys regarding the subject matters. Hope it's contagious : )) Well as far as I know, that butterfly is called 'Kırmızı Amiral' the direct translation of 'Red Admiral' However, due to the story that underlies, I'd rather use the latin origin coined by Carl Linnaeus, the Swedish natural scientist: 'Vanessa Atalanta' referringto Atalanta in mythology, who could run faster than men
