At the end of July, it was a beautiful summer’s day at Worsbrough Mill – I spotted this red admiral butterfly attracted by the scent of the Buddleja bushes that grow beside the mill pond. I chose this composition because I particularly liked the way the wing of the butterfly echoed the shapes formed by the flower buds in the background.

My partner was having treatment for cancer during that summer and we were regular visitors to both the gardens and the café.
