Malcolm says:

I was incredibly lucky to see a bright butterfly just fluttering along our yew hedge in late afternoon of early October, a Comma. It then entered the hedge and walked around inside to settle down and roost for the night. At the approach of my mobile camera it extended its forewing – now the inverted butterfly perhaps appears as a bizarre face with the ‘c’ marking an eye and the gap between wings as open jaws . .
