Autumn Colours in a Nutshell

Or rather in the local gardens to me. Spotted it fluttering down from the cotoneasters, and hoped it would settle long enough for me to get a pic.

It did, but not for any longer, and that was after having to do some daft gyrations to avoid casting my shadow across it as I approached from 15 metres away in a low sun casting a shadow like a striding giant.

I was getting some strange looks I can tell you. Unavoidable when you are a nature spotter sometimes. It's beena glorious day, so I didn't care.

  1. Strange looks are worth putting up with sometimes. I once had a car stop when the driver spotted me stretched out on the roadside verge with my bike lying close by - I was photographing an orchid!

  2. lovely photo, it's always so wonderful to see the red admirals so late in the year

  3. Thank you for yet another photo of a Red Admiral - I think of them as my farmer as one was present as we scattered his ashes.

  4. More of them about today, mainly fluttering by in the wind. THank you all!
