Our local Garden Centres sell large plastic butterflies to hang on house walls, but we were visited by the real thing today, 13/10/2020 at our house in Harman’s Cross! Far better than a plastic one we think. A zoomed in close up revealed that this Red Admiral was licking the stonework with its proboscis.
