Painted Lady

I was very much taken by a TV programme on BBC4 called: The Great Butterfly Adventure: Africa to Britain with the Painted Lady.

I have been looking out out for them and had a first sighting in my garden yesterday. After an hour and half of effort I did get one shot, but they were shy and with the 14-150 zoom the lady was too small.

In the cold grey morning today there was no sign of any butterflies at all. When the sun came out in the evening four of them appeared and posed for me. I used the 75-300 this time and got the shot I wanted.

Here it is, not cropped, only downsized:
