Sunbathing Comma

This week’s Flora and Fauna Friday post is a Comma butterfly (Polygonia c-album) sunbathing in a garden in Hatherton near Nantwich in southern Cheshire, England.

The butterfly gets its common English name because the reverse side of the hindwings has a white spot usually in the shape of C that resembles a comma. It’s found across Europe, North Africa and Asia.
