This is photograph of a rather beautiful Red Admiral Butterfly was captured whilst out and about during the Summer, "Which if my memory serves me right was on a Tuesday this year?"

Thank you for all your wonderful 'V' and 'C's' following yesterdays upload 'Sodden Journey', and a big thank you goes out to Lillian for her most welcomed UA, for which I really appreciate.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, me on the other hand is quite happy staying in the warm.

Regards Nathan

Good morning Nathan, what a fabulous shot, superb detail and colours, excellent dof. Staying inside certainly sounds like a good idea, dull over cast and threatening rain here :-(
