The Comma Nymphalis c-album (Nymphalidae)
The sombre underwings are marked with a white comma.like shape.
It's one of the most distinctive European butterflies because of the colour and shape of it's wings.
It's ragged margins are easily recognizable even in silhouette. Here are a few of last summers sightings.
Flight period is from March -September, in two broods.
It is widespread and common, and I love to see it in my garden.
Last but not least a gate for Thereas meme Good Fences, with these lovely Trumpet flowers.
