There were dozens of Wood Brown butterflies at Snipedales on Saturday, but I couldn't get near one to take a photo. Then I spotted this Red Admiral waiting for me on the brambles :-)

A beautiful butterfly! I don't think I've seen one of those before. I agree that they can be tricky to "catch," but you've done it here. Good capture!

She's beautiful. I adore watching butterflies on our butterfly bush and other flowers. My girls do, too.

Exquisite shot John. The wing span and details are amazing.

I love butterflies- I managed to entice a few into my garden this year by creating some new flower beds and planting some lavendar. I have had so many over the summer and was chuffed to bits as I know our numbers have been steadily decreasing. I have to say that those are really nice pictures :)
