Painted Lady butterfly

Vanessa cardui


Butterfly has a wingspan of about 2.5 to 3 inches. Color is orange brown with white bars.


Temperate climate feeding at our butterfly garden on Bachelor buttons, verbina and native lantanna.


There are about 5 in the feeding group. Some a bit larger in size. I think these are from the Painted Lady's that were in our garden in November 2016,
