    Yeah absolutely lovely dark muzzle! I would love to be able to get that close to one to get that type of shot. Doesn't seem like he was too bothered about you being there.

    Great photos. Nice to see a red admiral there. They don't seem to be as common as they used to be. Back the sixties my parent had a budlia (also know as a butterfly tree). When it was in flower it be be covered with them, along with large whites, peacocks, painted ladies and orange tips.

    I think that's due to the height of the bracken and the fact that Alfie couldn't see him and he couldn't see Alfie :D

    Yes we had one as children too that was covered in butterflies. The one that has particularly disappeared around here is the tortoiseshell.
    Mmmm, I've missed a picture off, will go and search for it
