Comma Butterfly

By teocali
Sitting in my hide waiting for birds, I was rewarded by this Comma Butterfly (Polygonia c-album), who settled on the perch and basked in the sunshine. Please view large if you have a moment.
Settings: F/6.3 1/400sec ISO100 manual@500mm tripod

My thanks to you all for your support of my Stag series. Very much appreciated Smile Although I do have more from the Bushy Park shoot, I don't want to bore you and will archive them for a rainy day!

A splendid butterfly capture made even more attractive by the edge of the wood, which echoes the shape of the wings
