Comma on blackberry

The warm September sun (around 26dgC today!) always brings the comma butterflies to the blackberries to feed. These uniquely-shaped butterflies spend the winter in a shed or other dark place and os need to build up sugar reserves to last them the winter without having to wake. The comma gets its name from the white mark on the underside of the wing which resembles the comma punctuation mark. Here I used a 105 macro lens, hand-held to give me freedom to get round the insects and shoot at different angles. I’ll put a few more in the butterflies gallery very shortly.
