Australian Painted Lady

Vanessa Kershawi


The Australian Painted Lady is native to, as the name would suggest, Australia although they have gradually been dispersed westward of Australia by the wind, making it a fairly common sight in New Zealand as well. I was lucky enough to see this one at the end of January and luckier still to take a photo of it before it flew away.
