The first 'Red Admiral' of the year.

Lots of cabbage whites and a few blue butterflies (mating) like they do!

But with the garden merging its efforts and pulling together a gorgeous display, who could blame the more exotic looking of butterflies flocking this way.

Ok - it was just the one, but she certainly made my day.

:: edited :: as pointed out by the lovely Jacquie at Bunny Mummy this is more likely to be a small tortoiseshell butterfly rather than a red admiral (darn Google images) - I'm so pants when it comes to markings!  Thanks Jacquie for the heads up.
