Comma Galore

At this stage the Comma Butterfly on the wing is the mid-summer variety having emerged at the beginning of July. These are fine specimens and make nice images to shoot.

  1. Hi Roy This is oone beautiful buterfly. Great shots of them. I like the 1st shot the best however the collage is interesting in that I can see the butterflies in different position all at once. I do't think we have ti butterfly here,anyway I have never seen one. I see my comments are still going into your spam, there is nothing I can do about that. I still cannot put replies on my posts, Well that s blogger.

  5. Great set of pics. I love seeing that little comma mark on the underside of the wings, too. I don't think I've spotted this butterfly yet this year. I'd better open my eyes wider!

  11. Nice. I'm sorry to say that I've not seen a single comma this year. But then, that's why is always fun to come here to see what you come up with.

  16. Beautiful Roy,
    I saw this Comma butterfly yesterday in my garden but could not photograph him. Was not a number but kept fluttering. Very nice this series of yours!
