Red admiral, that is. Last year, this was the first butterfly I saw, and it was early, in January. In fact, I saw two of them before January 2019 came to a close. This year it’s taken four and a half months but, finally, on Saturday, when I was enjoying a lovely wander along a local path, admiring the tall frothy loveliness of masses of Cow parsley, this little beauty floated towards me and settled, very obligingly, on a bramble bush right next to the path. Butterfly bliss!
Haven’t seen a red admiral yet this year. I did see my first Wall Brown at the wknd. 🙂

How lovely – I’m very envious of your Wall. We should have them along the coast here but they seem now to be locally extinct.
