According to Richard Lewington's Pocket Guide to Butterflies of GB and Ireland, the Comma has a paler form hutchinsoni which is produced in early July when caterpillars have been exposed to long periods of sunlight. I wonder is this could be an example as it is paler than some I have seen. It was photographed mid-July two years ago.
