What type of butterfly is this? Red & Black?

  • Nectar Sources/Host Plants

Hi, can anybody let me know what type of butterfly this is? It’s black with about 6 red spots on each wing, with a red tinge on the side of the wing. Found it in my garden, thanks for your help!

    Seriously though, type your question into general internet and start looking at photos, I identify all sorts of plants and wildlife this way.

    When I think of black butterfliesI think of Swallowtails.

    Could be a Red Admiral,esp;if there’s a white stripe on each wing.
