This week has been a bit of a challenge as we saw my Mum deteriorate quickly after what had appeared at first to be a minor problem. After her admission to hospital a scan showed some cancers in various places including liver and lungs. We were warned at that point that she would probably go downhill quite quickly and that is what happened with her passing away on Tuesday evening.
Throughout my life, my Mum encouraged me in my interest in the natural World. Without this encouragement I doubt I would have been as interested in wildlife as I am.
Her favourite butterfly has always been the Comma and I often think of her when I see one.
Here is a small selection of photos of a Comma for her!!
