Nature Colour matches: tiger lily, red admiral

The colour of this first tiger lily in bloom in our yard is very vibrant with an orange-red colour.
The orange red hue seems very similar to the orange red stripe on the Red Admiral butterfy
seen below. I am not too familiar with a Red Admiral but this year there seems to havee been an influx of them. This is the second Red Admiral I have seen today and I took pictures of one yesterday slso. I love their colour in their beautiful design!
