Still Under the Lilac

Joining the wasps under the lilac were three species of sap-happy butterfly.
A couple of Red Admirals quietly suckled.

More views of Commas.
Here we have both a Comma, lower left, and a Question Mark.

What a lilac!

And, oh, yes, this moth, presumably also attracted to the sap, has been taken by a spider in the shadowy recesses.
