Superb detail in this great capture, you were exceedingly lucky to get this shot, we have seen very few Red Admirals this year. Carole

Lovely detailed image Sylvia - frost last night but I saw one of these in the sunshine on a flower at dinner time + a Hummingbird Hawk-moth - I was amazed it was the first time I have seen one this year.
