LepiMAP Record of the Week

LepiMAP Record of The Week is this hibernating Garden Commodore (Precis archesia archesia) photographed by Steve Woodhall. He writes: "Our little winter visitor... Commodores overwinter as adults and the winter forms, like this female Garden Commodore seek out sheltered places to hibernate. She sat on our ceiling cornice for a week or two then today's warm weather woke her up. She settled on the sofa to sun herself, then I opened a window to let her out"

This record serves as a reminder to keep LepiMAPping even though it is winter time! Those winter records are super important too! Thank you Steve for all the great records you submit to LepiMAP
