A leaf among leaves / Лист между листьями


This comma or Углокрыльница с-белое (Polygonia c-album) is well-camouflaged when it is closed:


Olympus Stylus 1s, 300mm, ISO200, f8, 1/320s

When everything seems safe, it is time for some sun bathing:


Olympus Stylus 1s, 300mm, ISO200, f8, 1/160s

At the slightest movement, it will close it wings again, and disappear as far as most predators are concerned.

Here's a better look at its side, against a different background and in raking light to bring out the details:
Olympus XZ-1, 112mm, ISO100, f5.6, 1/160s
It really looks like a wrinkled brown leaf, except for the white "C", of course. Quite a difference from the other side of the wings:
Olympus Stylus 1s, 300mm, ISO200, f8, 1/160s
Thanks for watching!
