The Modest Butterfly (Tak-Ma-Doon-Road,Scotland)

My ride back from the Carron Valley was pretty bad. I had to walk back most of the way because I had evil cramp in my left leg which wasn't letting up so I had to make several stops along the way to rest.

 

It was on these stops I managed to snap a few surprise packages that I hadn't planned on taking photos of and this butterfly was one of them.

 

This 'Red Admiral' butterfly was fairly camera shy despite his spectacular markings and had a tendency to fly off when I got too close.

 

I was lucky enough to get this one though which made the pain totally worth it.
