A Comma Butterfly makes an interesting silhouette as it nourishes itself with the nectar of this tall blue flower – hanging upside down as it does so. Commas are interesting butterflies as their crenelated shape often mimics a dry leaf – very useful camouflage. The white marking on the wing is said to resemble a comma – hence the common name. This particular Comma stayed and fed on this flower for a couple of hours.
