Painted Lady

Yesterday afternoon I went back out to see if I could find and photograph some butterflies.  I got lucky and got a good number of photos of the same species of butterfly that the Say’s Phoebe was eating as shown in the former post.  It’s a Painted Lady, which at a 2” wing span is half the size of the 4” wing span of the better known Monarch. This is apparently migration time for butterflies in this area as we seem to have an abnormal amount fluttering around. I think I need to start paying additional attention to the “ladies”.
