Comma Butterfly at Amsterdamse Waterleiding Duinen I had no time to switch to macro for this one, so used a ridiculous focal length of 400mm. Interestingly, combined with cropping (which very much is possible on the D800 36MP sensor) you can achieve somewhat of a semi-macro result.

The Comma is a species of butterfly belonging to the family Nymphalidae. Its irregular wing edges are characteristic of the ''Polygonia'' genus, which is why they are commonly called anglewings. It is found in northern Africa and across Europe from Portugal through Asia as far as Japan. Its dorsal wings are colourful but its underside has a pattern that camouflages it when its wings are held together.
