The Comma

One may think the Comma (Polygonia c-album) looks a bit strange. It’s the shape if its wings that differentiates this butterfly from other closely related species like the Small Tortoiseshell and the European Peacock.

The Comma is a pretty common butterfly, perhaps not as common as its relatives listed above though. Flying in two generations this species can be spotted either in spring or after midsummer. Here are some shots from season 2014. In summer 2015 I focused on photographing other species. Unfortunately, I was not lucky finding any caterpillars and will continue my hunt early summer 2016.
