It’s not often you see a photo of a painted lady with it’s wings splayed out. The resolution on this photo is high and the colours are stunning. I had to do a little chasing to finally get this picture, but it was worth it.
Hi again Nadjia,
We were only going to post a couple of your images, but there are some very nice ones. We applaud your diligence in capturing this Painted Lady, Vanessa cardui. In California, we have West Coast Ladies that often migrate in huge numbers in the spring. This year’s desert bloom brought out millions of them. It was very impressive to see.
