Lovely Lady

A truly amazing butterfly, the Painted Lady is with us right now, amazing because they migrate from Africa. Beautiful markings, hence it’s name and if you get close enough look out for the proboscis it uses to get nectar from flowers. Next time you see one looking a bit tatty and faded just remember how far it has come.  They breed here and adults on the wing later in summer will be in pristine condition.
