Atalanta Butterfly, coloured pencils, Paula Kuitenbrouwer
The Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta) is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe, Asia and North America.
Butterflies should never get soaked. Before a storm they take shelter. Maybe they smell the rain coming? Or they feel the change of weather in another ways? I have no clue. But before it actually rains, butterflies hang under large leaves, on the undersides of large branches, or find a place in tree hollows.
