This beauty was on the inside of our window, so after patiently following it all over the window Jilly managed to catch this photo before releasing it outside again. We don't see many Red Admirals here, they are more common in the South Island.

one of several flitting around in the later afternoon on Gibraltar Peak (Port Hills, Christchurch, New Zealand).
