Stunning camouflage, Ed, he looks like a dried up blackberry leaf. Very well spotted and captured. Carol

As Carol has said, the camouflage is amazing, the wing colour exactly matching the old fruit heads: it's a wonder therefore that you actually spotted the butterfly at all, Ed.
And as always, captured with your inimitable flair for detail and colour.

And you can see the comma on its wing which gives it its name.
