Comma Butterfly

As well as the jam/wine/pie makers gathering blackberries at ANR today this comma butterfly was taking advantage of the wild fruit. I particularly wanted to share this because it closed its wings for me revealing the curious white ‘comma’ mark on its under wing from which it gets its name. The ‘deckled’ edge of its wings is typical of this species and is not a sign of wear and tear.

The baby great crested grebe I reported recently seems to be thriving and I was pleased to see a family group of four little grebes on the same pond. The most photogenic shot however was of this pair of swans making a romantic shape.
