This Peacock and Red Admiral were photographed by Mark at Garston Wood on 12/07/19. and he says he thinks the Red admiral was possibly newly emerged as it appeared very drowsy.

Maybe it just enjoyed the attention from Mark as he captured the amazing beauty of its underwing pattern. A very colour co-ordinated butterfly!
