Comma Butterfly– Perfectly camouflaged with wings closed, its ragged edge and colouring looking like a dead leaf, this large Butterfly is a gorgeous orange-toffee colour on its upper wings. Named from the white comma-shape on its underwing, it was common before a steep decline in the mid-1800’s, thought due to the decline in its caterpillar’s favourite food- hops. It only survived in the Welsh borders- now it is extending its range again, feeding on nettles. We often get it in the garden, warming up on wooden surfaces. Conditions: Stiff breeze, sun and cloud. Temperature: Max 21- Min 15C.
