Romeo Alpha clear take off

Red Admiral butterfly departing yellow dahlia at Cragside pauses for final safety checks before powering up for transition to flight.

At the risk of stating the obvious, you need to click the pic to see it at its best, as the thumbnail barely reveals the presence of a butterfly at all! :)

I love your butterfly photos. I've got a few from Cragside in ?03.

Thank you! And yes, I think it was 2003. Same Cragside visit as the quite good, quite scary one of a wasp saying "goodbye cruel world" (or buzzes to that effect) while taking a one-way trip into one of those carnivorous pitcher-plant things. Oh and there's a ?Red Admiral on rocks at Howick also, I seem to recall. :)
