Red Admiral

By CaroleS
A Red Admiral that seemed to be so full of nectar from the Sedum that it just wanted to stay where it wasSmile

The background is natural it is just the greenery from more Sedum that were towering over the lower weighty flower heads. Tweaked in Photoshop.

A very big thank you for all your interesting comments on yesterday's uploads and to ColleenW for the GEAGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin


I am taking a break for a while, we have so much on at home and with the family at present, that I just do not have time to do all your images justice.

Lol...beached whale. Just like me after lunch today Grin

Gosh...that smooth rich green and the lush pink of the Sedum go so well together, don't they??

Gorgeous capture, Carole. Super detail and colour on the whale Smile
