This Red Admiral was sunning itself on a Westerly facing wall at 4:30 in the afternoon.

The Vanessa atalanta or Red Admiral is a well-known colourful butterfly, found in temperate Europe, Asia and North America. The species is resident only in warmer areas, but migrates north in spring, and sometimes again in autumn. This large butterfly is identified by its striking dark brown, red and black wing pattern. The caterpillar feeds on nettles, and the adult drinks from flowering plants like the Buddleia and overripe fruit. This information from Wikipedia LinkExternal link
