Despite the weather forecast for rain, today was sunny and warm. The buddleia in my garden were covered with butterflies, bees and other insects. Among the butterflies, peacocks were particularly numerous.
The caterpillars of this butterfly feed mainly on nettles. The adults feed n Buddleia, willows, dandelions, wild marjoram, danewort, hemp agrimony, and clover. They may also feed on rotten fruit.
