|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a Comma butterfly (known as Gehakkelde Aurelia in dutch), first generation survives the winter as butterfly, hiding between fallen leaves. Their somewhat strange contours make them less likely to be labeled as prey by birds and other predators.|
The name Comma butterfly originates from the white comma-like structure underneath its wings. This structure is also referred to in the Latin name: Polygonia c-album (comma album; white comma).

Fine closeup of this fine looking Comma butterfly (I think), simple and beautiful. some notes will help, always. tfs.
Hello Thierry ,
A very interesting butterfly species and very nice macro
Detail, vivid colors and wonderful composition.
Perspective, excellent light and sharpness settings. TFS
So clean and son beautiful.
In derogation of the disturbance caused by the blurred leaves in the foreground, one can say that is a good macro, excellent POV and very good light. Also the depth of focus is very good. For the next time is better avoid such obstacles in the view of the butterfly. Regards, TFS, Jesús
