I shot these images on a recent walk.
The Butterfly is the Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta). This particularly one was not looking at its best. They are a migratory species and have travelled a long way to get here from the Mediterranean area, so its not surprising that some look a bit worn. The males patrol along sunny edges of woodland rides and hedgerows. Look out for females that fly along and pitch on nettles, which is the favoured place to lay eggs.
This Wren (Troglodytes troglodytes) below suddenly appeared in a thick tall bush alongside a path.
I was able to get a few shots before it disappeared again.
NB: The heading of this post was intended to be a jovial play on the meaning of Admiral and Wren. For those that it may not mean anything, Admiral is a rank in the Royal Navy and many years ago the female members of the RN served in the Woman's Royal Naval Service W.R.N.S. and the term Wren was used as their initial rank in that Service.
Of course today male and female members of the RN are all classed as serving RN personnel in one Service.
The jovial heading was in no way intended to denigrate the female members of the RN who were and are amongst the finest individuals of our and previous generations.
