This photograph has sat on my computer for nearly 10 years, untouched and unidentified but in an attempt to have a tidy up of files, I tried to find the answer.
I first saw a photo of a newly emerged Red Admiral in Collins Complete Guide to British Butterflies and Moths and a further search on the web brought me to the following website where the evolution of a Red Admiral is charted from caterpillar to adult with an almost identical photo to mine although much clearer! So I am pretty certain of my identification.
This was in my early days of digital photography so rather poor result.
