Mourning Cloaks

These butterflies are now a common sight all over the place. In Europe they are called Camberwell Beauties.

They are Nymphalids, which is the same family as the Painted Lady, Red Admiral and Tortoiseshells. Out of all of these, it is most like a Tortoiseshell regarding shape of wings and its habits, though it glides quite a lot more than a Tortoisehell.
