A Red Admiral Butterfly (Two Photographs)

Walking in nature reserves, the thing I notice most is movement and out of place color. Often the movement means that whatever it was is getting away from me. Sometimes it gives me a hint as to where to look to find a subject. This butterfly and I startled each other, I backed off and it flew into a tree. These are the photographs I took when it landed. In cases like this a long hand-held lens helps. Long because of the distance and handheld because a tripod would have been awkward to adjust for the height.
