069/365 Close up of Comma butterfly

To continue the theme of macro photography with butterflies I thought I would give you a close up shot of a Comma butterfly.  The detail in these species are fabulous and one that you wouldn’t normally see in the field without a high magnification lens. I really like the chequered pattern in its eye.

Comma, Polygonia c-album, Herefordshire, July, 2007,
