Today, it rained all day, which would also be a great R, but there has been an explosion of Red Admiral butterflies this week, which seems more interesting.
Seriously, when I walked out back, every few steps another one of these butterflies would rise from the grass and flutter past. Yesterday was sunny, and while I was out doing assignments I managed to catch a photo of one basking on a warm railing.
Earlier in the week I literally caught one, and took one picture. I was hopeful that when I let go it might sit still for a minute, allowing me to get a close up, but no such luck. All you get is a picture of the captured butterfly.
It has a pretty scientific name, Vanessa atalanta.
Tomorrow is a busy day. Come back and find out why!
