I was so keen to get close to this butterfly and take his picture that I didn’t notice that he had a slight imperfection, his rear off side being slightly out.
But in the end his imperfection didn’t matter because I was fascinated to see him taking nectar from a flower that hadn’t opened yet and…..

So the Comma has got a post. Well done beautiful butterfly.

Absolutely wonderful! What did you say to that butterfly to get it to pose? The last but one pic of that lovely long butterfly tongue is brilliant.
I didn’t have to say anything. I just thumbed my nose at him and he stuck his tongue out at me 🙂 Glad you liked the pics. 🙂
