The Comma is a common sight in most of England and Wales and is one of the few species currently expanding its range. Its name comes from a small white comma shaped marking on the underwing, which is clear to see against its dark brown and black background, if only the butterfly would close its wings. Unfortunately the Comma is almost unique in opening its wings out flat immediately, almost every time it lands.More pictures of Whiteley Village by Alan Whitehead...
