OK, took me a while to search, but it's a Mock Strawberry of the Potentilla family. They produce small red berries that look like strawberries.

Thanks Saly. From the family name it sounds like it could be deadly (potentilla). Best not eat the fruit if that is the case!

Great shots, Saly. That flower is just dazzling. Glad that the butterfly is back to business, drawing nectar!
