                                           Comma Polygonia c-album
                                                    Under wing shot showing "comma" mark.

                  I photographed several species of flower that were out in bloom and looking lovely in the sunlight.

                                          Lesser Celandine Ranunculus ficaria

                                          Sweet Violet Viola adorata
                                                   Sweet Violet Viola adorata (white variant)
Both variants were showing well in Ladywalk Wood among the Lesser Celandine.
