|We had our first 2022 Comma sighting today. |
The photos below (with the exception of the last one) show the Comma in our garden. I was fascinated by its proboscis, which it kept rolling up and unwinding ... as you will see. I would love to know what it was finding to eat. Incidentally, I found this site very informative about the butterfly proboscis - do take a look.

And just to add a postscript. The small bee was still around this morning ... here it is flying towards its hole in our masonry.
