The Lady late by jesika2

The Lady late

Painted Lady should have left for warmer climes before now. It's possible she'll find her way to Africa...
Notice how green the thorax is.
My York garden

@rontu @photographycrazy @milaniet @lastrami_ @koalagardens Thank you all. She was quite high in the buddleia so I'm rather pleased to get this shot. The green DOES make her look glittery & glowing, Linda, I hadn't thought of it like that but you are so right. A butterfly's scales are so complex in the way they reflect light.

Excellent close-up!

Lovely shot! Maybe she's decided that she's in a good place and will stay?

@lostphojo hopefully she’s headed south because Painted Lady cannot survive our winter. We only learnt 10 years ago that they went back to Africa, previously it was thought they simply died at the end of their natural life span. Thank you, David

Wonderful! It's been a good year for these beauties. Hope she makes it back. I'm still seeing a few butterflies despite the constant drizzle.
