Today, like a lot of my days, has been a Good Day if a tad phrenetic at times. It's now 2230 and I'm going to finish this and go to sleep ready for an 0500 start and a three-day drive from one end of the country to the other. I'm taking Anna home to Glasgow, picking up CJ on the Wirral and going to visit his Daughter-who-takes-photos and Son-in-law-who-loves-otters. It should be an enjoyable and exciting 10 days.
Earlier this week Anna and I were sitting in the sun in the garden having our morning coffee (didn't you just want that detail?) when a Red Admiral landed on the hebes. I'm not sure how often I've seen Red Admirals in the garden but they are not frequent visitors and, as I've never blogged on them here in Eagleton, presumably I've never photographed one since I started the blog. I managed a lot of shots of this one, some of which were useable:
So today I am thankful for the opportunity to sit and watch the world which, in turn, gives me the opportunity to see and photograph such wonderful creatures.
