Last Tuesday when the sky was clear and the Sun shining brightly I was almost caught unawares when a Red Admiral flew in and settled on an old planter near the bottom of the garden. Considering that night temperature had been below 2C and even in the Sun it was only 6C with a very cold breeze the last thing I expected to see was a butterfly.
Even with a 400mm zoom lens this is all I could see with the 70D:

It stayed long enough to get a bit of video, same 400mm zoom with 3x digital zoom in the camera:
Have a great weekend observing the wildlife around you.
You never know what will turn up.
