Red Admiral Butterfly

Red Admiral Butterfly, Shot mid September, Totland Bay, Isle of Wight. By Jason Swain.

I’ve read that apparently the indifferent (crap) summer in the UK has hit the butterfly population really hard, with some of the species showing alarming rates of decline, the ‘Big Butterfly Count’ had ‘Red Admiral Butterfly’ numbers down by 72%.

I’m not sure what it’s called, but the tree that was in blossom outside my house was driving the butterflies crazy, and i saw dozens of these Red Amiral Butterflies a short period of time.
