Vanessa atalanta a.k.a. Red Admiral or Red Admirable on Centranthus ruber

I found this butterfly on the small island of Christiansø, Denmark. The Centranthus ruber or red valerian is generally not common in northern Europe but apparently on Christiansø is a particular mild climate so that this and other rather southern European plants are growing there.
