Today was a nice summer day and I was sitting outside having my lunch in the garden when this chap caught my eye. I thought about running for the camera and decided against it and continued with my cup of tea. However the butterfly stayed for a good while on one set of flowers on the bush then moved to another. With that I ran for the camera and the butterfly was still there when I got back, phew!
I have decided that it is a Red Admiral. More info about butterflies can be found here on the butterfly-conservation.org website.
