We are gradually introducing more insect and butterfly friendly flowers into our garden and this Red Admiral decided to pay us a visit. Well I do need the practice, but every shot I learn more.

Thank you for all your comments and votes on my Mock Orange yesterday.

Best wishes
Carole

Beautifully caught (that sedum is certainly magical stuff for enticing bugs into the garden - I must get some more!). Smile

We're doing the same but not much success at the moment. Nicely captured and a lovely colour to the flower, Carole,

He's a beauty, Carole. Despite spotting 9 different species yesterday, I still didn't see an admiral. Carol

Not easy to capture as they move so fast!
That is if you see one at all!
Great capture here - hope you'll succeed in enticing plenty more.
