Comma in the Sun

I found another Comma Butterfly (Polygonia c-album) braving the elements of this still fairly cold period of Spring. I doubt that the temperature, even with the sun shining, was no more than 11 Celsius at the time. This one was in pretty good condition considering it has been hibernating through our Winter.

  3. I've not seen a single butterfly warming itself up yet - and thus making it easier to photograph - but seen a couple of small torts on the wing today

    1. There are a few about, but it needs to be in the sunny and sheltered areas Simon.

  8. That Comma had survived well. Amazing that such delicate creatures can survive cold, wind and rain through the Winter.
