Lots of butterflies on The Net (though butterfly nets themselves have an Edwardian aura) – but all this summer I have wanted to capture on camera a red admiral with its wings outstretched. It is now the edge of autumn, pace blue skies and balmy September weather.  So on this last remaining budding buddleia, here was an obliging red admiral. October 1st today. I don’t suppose I shall see many more butterflies this year.

Almost the last buddleia in full flower, almost the last butterfly of the year. The underwings of red admirals are such a pretty sight.
