Some common British butterflies

I have a lovely buddleia bush in the garden, and on days like today, it's easy to see why the plant has the other name of "butterfly bush" as it's been covered in butterflies.

Female large white (aka cabbage white)
Male large white
Peacock
Tortoiseshell

Red Admiral
Comma
I haven't seen a Comma for years, and I remember the first time I saw one I thought something had been nibbling at its wings.  Oh well, we live and learn!

Until next time. x
