Bright colours

By HobbitDave
A Red Admiral butterfly on a garden cold frame yesterday. These little winged beauties are amazing how they manage to survive thunder and lightning and very heavy rain, they must find cracks in a wall, or eaves of a shed perhaps. Resilient they are 🦋

Thanks kindly for the clicks and comments on the rose pics yesterday, and those much coveted awards from JuBarney, JanetDinah, and Dales,which are really appreciated and encouraging 🐈

Lovely set Dave and V1 is my favourite although I like the wholeness of V2! Just the same if offered a chocolate bar, can never choose which one! Wink

We don't see as many Red Admirals as we used to do. They were my butterfly of choice!
