The Comma (Polygonia c-album) derives its English name from a small white mark on the underside of the wing in the shape of a comma.
Prior to hibernation individuals range widely in the search for nectar and rotting fruit. This one was feasting with friends on a pile of well fermented apple pulp, the residues from cider pressing. This is a photo from September 2011, but on 3rd October two years later, while gathering the last of the apples for pressing, I saw that they were back, lurking among the fallen apples on the ground.
