It is so nice to see a post from you.
A very beautiful butterfly indeed. Actually very amazing-looking. The colors make me think of Jacob' s multi-colored coat for some reason.
You did an incredible job of bringing out all the nuances and hues hidden in that brown underwing. That definitely requires a high level of photographic skills.
Very impressive presentation of this red admiral.
TFS. : )

An excellent shot on this Red Admiral. The exposure looks spot on. This has rendered some beautiful colors and sharp intricate detail.
Perfect control on the DOF. You have him perfectly on the focal plane.
Very well done!
Gotta revisit for a well deserved :) tomorrow....Over my limit today!!!
good to see a posting from you again here on TN.
Remarkably rich spectre of colours you have made visible here on the well camouflaged underside of wings of a red admiral lady. The little but clear indication of seeing a female here is well visible. Perfect composition, excellent notes. Common species seen in a different way.
I am not surprised to read Vanessa atalanta is successfully hibernating in the UK. Even I would if I could afford the high cost of living there. As I remember from a few visits to these lucky islands they do not seem to have any winter and are enjoying topless sports cars and subtropical vegetation all over the place even as far north as Scotland.
With thanks, and best regards,
