More Butterflies

My Buddleia variety Black Knight rarely produces flowers that attract butterflies, mainly as it is generally North-facing and shaded. At the moment it is spreading right over the garden and the blooms are catching the sun.
We had two Painted Ladies and a Peacock today and, sitting on the gooseberry net nearby, a Comma - that's the first time I have seen one in the garden.
Later one of the Painted Ladies, presumably sated on nectar, snuggled down into the Viburnum and closed her wings, that's the last photo in the collage.
We had a variety of bees, hoverflies and wasps too but the butterflies are prettier.
