New York State Insect

New York State Insect(White admiral butterfly: By Saxophlute at English Wikipedia, CC BY-SA 3.0link. Note: I modified the background on the left and added the ladybug.)

The Empire State has two official insects. The nine-spotted ladybug was named the state insect in 1989. The red-spotted purple, or white admiral, was later named the state butterfly. The Karner blue butterfly was a popular rival.
