Unusual Wings | Eastern Comma | New York

I really like the Eastern Comma butterfly.

The Eastern Comma has nice subtle coloring and shading.

My favorite feature of the Eastern Comma butterfly is the unusual shape of its wings.

Most of the butterflies we think of have large rounded wings in comparison to their bodies.

The Eastern Comma on the other hand has almost the opposite of that wing shape.

The shape of the Eastern Comma wing is almost like a “W” on both the upper and lower lobe of the wings.

And even each indented curve of the wing has its own texture and bumps and ridges to it.

It is just a cool and interesting looking butterfly.

Photo details: Nikon D300S. Nikon 300mm f/4. Focal length 420mm. ISO 400. 1/1000 sec. f/5.6.
