Comma butterfly spotted late July
So lucky! just at the end of July and I have spotted another new butterfly in the garden. Now when I say new, I mean new to me. They may have been flitting around for years, but I don't think so - and this is the new sighting - The Comma.
This is the female, pretty wings, the underneath a good disguise looking like a dried up leaf. See below - and also below the reason it's called the Comma. See the white "comma" on the underneath?

PS - also today, a Gatekeeper, but that was not new to the garden as I posted about this butterfly last Summer.
