Red Admiral

Taken at Powerstock nature reserve. There was plenty of Peacocks, Red Admirals and Small Tortoiseshell butterflies on this reserve. Where there is Hemp Agrimony, which is everywhere, and a sunny spot, you will find these butterflies. Hemp Agrimony is a plant that is a very good source food for our butterflies at this time of year. Also, at this reserve, I saw a few Clouded Yellows.
