My First Butterfly

By teocali
The first butterfly that has ever stayed still for long enough for me to capture it (handheld, Canon 70-200 F/4L IS 1/320s F/5 ISO 100).

Don't know what sort of butterfly it is - identification, comments and mods welcome Smile

Gorgeous. I sense there'll be many more to come.

It's a male Red Admiral teocali. Taken very well, nice and sharp with the beautiful marking clearly shown. link

Others have identified it, so all I need say is that this is a great first shot.

Hi Everybody
Thank you all so much for your nice comments - they really mean a lot and boost my confidence. Thanks also for the identification - I had a feeling it was a Red Admiral but didn't want to commit myself in public!!
Am hoping for a few more days of sunshine which might lure another co-operative butterfly out before winter sets in.
