Special shoes...Red Admiral (thanks Les!)

By gabriel_flr  
this shot has been taken yesterday in the evening between two rains (the usual weather here last days...), He was on my head, on my shirt and on my finger too but it was impossible to shoot with the left hand...i just wanted to test an old Canon Digital Rebel. i said myself: "let him fly!" but after some seconds he was back on my shoes, i think they love me, ha, ha Wink
Many thanks for your comments on my last pic!
