Painted Lady (<em>Vanessa cardui</em>)

Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui)

There was a mass emergence of this species here last week. I had at least 11 of them in a patch of loosestrife including 7 all in my same field of view. There were lots of reports from other areas too. I had never seen numbers of this species like that before.

other sizes: small medium original

Terrific shot Chris. I have about 10 in my yard.
