Venus Pool - Aberrant Comma

A good year for Comma butterflies, plenty about and the first to emerge are always very obliging to photograph and then largely ignored. I had to look twice when one flew past me today, did I just see a flash of white?!

I've seen images of 'white' Comma's where the orange brown coloration is completely lost but here the white was restricted to the lower part of the hind wings...

And if you look closely, the body hairs over the same region!

The things Butterflies do to get themselves noticed!
