Painted Lady Butterfly
Painted Lady Butterfly
Seen here on a Knapweed flower. Painted Lady butterflies are very common migrants to this country. This one however was probably born here as a result of migrants mating earlier in the summer. This is suggested by the paler salmon pink colour to its wings and the time of year, August.
