hin[22] / B&M - comma

A Comma butterfly [Polygonia c-album] resting on leaves. S/he didn't stay long in any one place !
also known as 'anglewing' from the conspicuous notches on the forewings.
Strong fliers, although not actually migratory they do move around, which helps diversity ...

May be sitting on common stinging nettle, a favoured food plant for the larval stages.

Wow, spectacular! That does indeed look like stinging nettle - and least the western US version.
