Red admiral

Yesterday was the first time this week that the weather was good enough to find butterflies with much chance of success. Even then I only saw 10 butterflies in around 2 hours, made up of 5 different species. Dragonflies were much more common.

This is one of 3 red admirals seen and it stayed in this spot for a long time. It was not easy to get at it.
