  1. Thanks for sharing this photo. Note that in JungleDragon, members are asked to include basic details as part of the photo, therefore please consider the following tip(s):

    - You did not share any location info. You are asked to at least share the country in which the photo was taken, since this helps in identifying the species. You can set the country using the "Set country" button. Even better is to geotag the photo, which you can do using the "Geotag this photo" button.

    - You did not identify the species on the photo. To identify the species, use the "Identify species" button. If you do not know the exact species, please share what you do know such as the location and family of species so that others can assist in exact species identification.

    Note that by sharing your photo with more complete details, it will show up in the species browser, the global wildlife map and in search. It helps people find your photo much better, plus it delivers a far more educational photo. Check out our photo sharing tutorial for more information:

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.
