Watching the skies but he left empty handed
Scanning the bird table looking for a target

While washing the dishes yesderday a sparrowhawk swooped into the garden hoping to grab something on the way it then landed on my fence so i made a quick dash for my scope, tripod and camera and managed to get these shots through the kitchen window, who said? housework is boring.

Red Admiral

These snaps were taken in the back garden I was preparing the vege patches for the autumn and could not resist taking these shots,I do not normally take much notice of insects in the garden but seeing these seems to have sparked an interest apparantly these belong to a group of butterflies called aristocrats as far as i know.
