I took this picture of a Comma butterfly just after it emerged from its chrysalis in my garden. Just a few weeks before I took this picture, I watched the caterpillar of this Comma Butterfly (also known by its scientific name, Polygonia c-album) feasting upon the leaves of my Blackcurrant plants. I only noticed the caterpillar because of its large size, there was minimal damage done to my plants.
