During the winter months, comma butterflies hibernate on the lower branches of trees. With their wings closed they resemble a dead leaf, and can remain perfectly camouflaged throughout the winter. If you look closely at the underside of the wings you can see the white coloured 'comma' which gives this butterfly its name.
