Today I was lucky there were butterflies too busy having a feast on the fig tree to notice me , so happy to catch a few shots.
Thanks to Ricky once again for the ID :- Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)

Good shots. Nice focus. I'd love to be there when those figs ripen.

What a colourless world it would be without butterflies! I suggest Ole and elizzi would take steps to introduce them in their respective countries.

Very nice!
We don't have so beautiful bitterflies in the Faroes. Well, we don't have fig trees either.

Gorgeous shots, Moira! You were so fortunate to catch him with such a pretty background - love #3. What are the teal/blue-green leaves in #5?
