This red admiral butterfly might be looking for somewhere to hibernate. I don't know about Austria, but it used to be said red admirals couldn't survive the winter in Britain.Increasingly, they are successfully hibernating.

Interesting, that would be a good study, to see where different types of butterflies go in the winter..

What a gorgeous pic!!! I could sell my soul to that butterfly shaped shadow, its just so photographically delicious.

That would be interesting in fact, re selling the soul to a butterfly shaped shadow, decisions at the crossroads.. heheh.

This guide entry - A995646 - covers diapause, which butterflies use to dial back their metabolisms during winter dormancy.

Monarchs and Queens cheat a bit: they fly to warmer winter places.

Here's a video of a Queen butterfly: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=queen+butterfly&docid=608045293702676872&mid=C1A850E40EA3B9FD340DC1A850E40EA3B9FD340D&view=detail&FORM=VIRE

You asked a fantastic question, cactuscafe, and I for one learned something from it.
