Painted Lady

I had heard that there had been an influx of Painted Lady butterflies recently but I hadn't seen any. However, I came across two of them on Carlton Marshes this morning. Definitely one of our most beautiful butterflies.

E-M1 and 75-300 II.

Re: Painted Lady


I quite agree one of the finest migrants we get. Yours has definitely had an adventurous journey. But still looks ready for more.

Butterfly conservation were asking everyone to report sightings here.

The map is fairly well spread now, but data is always welcomed by the scientists.

Re: Painted Lady

Not had any in the garden this year, yet, but we normally do. Been a poor year for BFs here so far in terms of numbers spotted.
