Red Admiral Studies

The buddleias have come back into flower, and after a blank fortnight or so, butterflies are back feeding on them again.

But while peacocks were the dominant visitor in high summer, now autumn approaches it is the hardy red admiral who had settled in to the pink and purple blooms. These beautiful specimens were photographed on my moto g in my garden and on the millgate bridge buddleia.

Once again, I apologise for my mobile phone photographs. My Moto G LTE does not match up to the camera on my Orange San Diego, and thus I'm in the market for a decent budget compact camera.
