Butterflies and Bees

There had been a scarcity of butterflies this year but this afternoon my garden was filled with them.

The red admirals were very camera shy (I will keep trying) but the peacock butterflies were quite happy to pose for me. Research says that peacock butterflies lay their eggs on nettles so I shouldn't be surprised that there are so many around here...

They were having to share the buddleias with the bees.
