Rotten Apples and Butterflies

Yesterday I had to go next door to finish off cutting our shared hedge, but I was distracted, as usual, by an opportunity to take pictures. I finished the hedge, but not before I had spent an hour lying down in the grass, getting wet and risking being stung by wasps, photographing these butterflies. They let me go very close, but I suspect they were probably a bit drunk. As far as I can work out, the butterflies here are the Red Admiral, the Comma, and the Speckled Wood, but I’m no better on butterflies than varieties of apple.
