Having been out looking for some butterflies to photograph with my new macro lens it was typical that, on returning home to Dunmow, we should immediately spot a Red Admiral fluttering around the back garden. Of course. as soon as it saw me with camera in hand it legged it into next doors garden! Not to worry, I was still able to get some pictures leaning over the 5 foot wall that separates our gardens.

As you can see, typical of the Red Admiral it had made for the buddleia and it very obligingly stayed there for a good 5 minutes.
