Ce papillon est de toute beauté et bien photographié.
Bill Phillips: They are lovely indeed
incredible shot, Bill. i love the colours here. the fuchsia tones are well set off by the greens.
Bill Phillips: He landed it the right place and waited patiently for me to take some snaps!

I don't see any red on the wings of this butterfly - a great image! you seem to be Ray's best student.
Bill Phillips: Now you mention it they are not red they are more an orange admiral

I think a new brood have just emerged. This one looks pristine
Bill Phillips: A fresh specimen . but they soon get tatty
Indeed so, Bill. Mother Nature in her glory and beautifully presented to us.

Funny that they are called Admiral. I would have thought Air Marshall more appropriate.
Bill Phillips: You have a point.

This is beautiful, Bill. such a joy to see these flying around and even taking a rest on the flowers. I assume this is your flowergarden?
Bill Phillips: Sadly not. It was taken at a National Trust property

From the back it could be a Rear Admiral. A good shot.
Bill Phillips: Hahahaha very good
Beautiful, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Tom
So pretty! I was very glad I saw butterflies this week knowing they somehow survived the hurricane.
Bill Phillips: Amazing how creatures can survive Mary
An altogether very good shot Bill.
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you Brian
Very elegant creatures.......a great photo, Bill! smile
Bill Phillips: They are a delight, and happily there seem to have been more of them about this year
