Commas and Spots

We've seen both of these on the plot before but I think they deserve a mention as they're both quite special looking.
First, there's the comma butterfly (Polygonia c-album); such an interesting shape which makes it so identifiable - not sure why it was so interested in the post where we feed the robins and blackbirds - a bit of a risky place to hang round I think!
Next is the 22-spot ladybird - such a tiny little bug.
It's a grass-eater, not a seedling eater so no problem with seeing them on the site.
