A Surprise Garden Visitor Today

Comma Polygonia c-album

This one of those moments when I was just about to photo a flower nestled in the back of the garden border when this beautiful Comma Polygonia c-album butterfly alighted on a flower right before my lens. It was so intent on feeding it hardly noticed me clicking away at all.

  1. Great detail, Pete. I am also finding commas here. And a first for meβ€”alpine commons (Erebia epipsodea)! I’ve never noticed them before and have seen them in 3 widely separated areas in the last few days.

      1. I have some shots but nothing worth posting β€” but they remind me that I have seen them!

  2. Commas are such nice butterflies! i’m always so amazed how they can shine so bright one second just to become next to invisible the next (from the side then) πŸ™‚
