The Comma (Polygonia c-album) is a species of butterfly that ranges across Europe and temperate Asia to Japan and south to Morocco. Similar species are found in the United States and Canada.
The Comma 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 species survives the winter in the adult stage.
Le Robert-le-Diable (Polygonia c-album) est un papillon diurne de la famille des Nymphalidae, sous-famille des Nymphalinae, du genre Nymphalis et du sous-genre Polygonia. Le Robert-le-Diable vole dès les premiers jours ensoleillés de février à fin novembre.

A beautiful shot of this butterfly. The strands of the plant look like a wake or trail left by the butterfly...

Commas are such spectacularly beautiful butterflies. I never see them here. This is a great shot! Thank you for sharing.

Nice photo of this one! I doubt they survive the Canadian winters in the adult stage though, LOL!
