[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Comma (Polygonia c-album) is a species of butterfly, common in the United Kingdom and with a distribution across Europe and temperate Asia to Japan and south to Morocco. Similar species are found in the United States and Canada. It has a white marking on its underwings resembling a comma. The wings have a distinctive ragged edge, apparently a cryptic form as the butterfly resembles a fallen leaf. The caterpillars are also cryptic, resembling a bird dropping.

I used a conversion lens or whatever it's called on this one plus one of those circular flashes (borrowed from a friend for a short period of time:)) Don't remember settings. Don't know where raw files are.

Buna Caline,
O fotografie experimentala reusita, felicitari! Dar pentru ca aici culorile ar trebuie sa fie cit mai mult naturale, acest lucru trebuie sa fie primordial, ca este vorba si de documentarea unei specii!
Numai bine,

Hello Calin,
Not usual crop level for a butterfly macro, but the result is very eye catching! well done!, wel use of fill flash also.
TFS, regards, Jesús
