Vanessa cardui.

I have only had one view of a Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) so far this year. A totally unexpected sighting during our trip to Norfolk. Unfortunately it didn't perch for long so just a few quick shots.

According to my hard drive I appear to be amassing a plethora of unsorted flutter pics from recent wanderings so I'll have to knuckle down in order to up some more species in the near future. FAB.


  1. so beautiful! i drew one of those for a giveaway last fall. :)

  2. Lovely shots of the Painted Lady!

  3. Nice to see Frank,you did very well getting these images.
    Good job.

  4. Very pretty! Our butterfly counts are way down this, year. It has been a very nice Summmer, and so I am not sure what has happened... and virtually no hummingbirds near my home either...I have to travel further away to find for my next post;)

  5. It's good to see that you've got Painted Ladies. I haven't seen any this year.

  6. Nice and pleasant Painting Lady, cheers Frank.


I hope you enjoyed your visit and I always appreciate your comments and feedback.
