Spring is in the air


Comma Butterfly

Just out of hibernation and catching the sun on a piece of granite is this little - Comma Butterfly, Polygonia c-album -

Picture taken 18th March 2009, Southampton.
...

The green looks slightly streaky, almost as if it's been cloned clean, but it hasn't, so it must be the greenery in the not too distant background.
The picture has been slightly cropped and resized for uploading, that's all.

Small butterfly makes big shadow.
I love all butterflies, and this is a lovely shot of this one. I think the green adds to the picture.

A beautiful pic- in every detail- the butterfly (C-Falter, but I find the English term more appropriate), his/her shadow -the rough wall- the green ( or in my imagination: blue)- the velvety look, the warm colours of the butterfly have been captured very well!
I don't think I've seen one of these before Ellie, beautiful creature.
Wonderful picture, I like the composition very much !
I haven't seen one of these in a long time Ellie. Lovely picture
Beautifull colour and nice composition. I like it.

Oh lovely Ellie - gorgeous hues!
The image of the butterfly is very pretty, but I also like how you chose the composition, with such bright colors!
