    They've been very numerous this year, which many attribute to climate change. Taken not with a macro lens but the 100-400mm. TTTW. Thank you for your comments, and good birding!

    I guess there must have been some salts in the earthy canal path that this butterfly was enjoying. Can't think why else he was there.

    My brother seemed to have quite a few different butterflies in the garden, and this Red Admiral was another one. Sadly I didn't manage a decent picture of them all.

    He was on the fence at the bottom of my brother's garden. It seemed to be a favoured spot for butterflies, as there were often a few there when the sun was shining on it. TTTW

    I've often wondered how they got the name.... they're not 'red' but mostly black with orange edges LOL Another one on the huge buddleia beside the canal. In dappled light, which affected the colours.

    Along the canal is a bridge over a stream and it has a huge buddleia growing there. Most days I stopped to look and see what butterflies were attracted to it. I had varying degrees of success in getting pictures of them. This was the first one I managed to get, well it is rather big, isn't it LOL
