The Painted Lady
Friends, this pretty butterfly is called the painted lady, i think she is quite beautiful and she loves the blooming fall asters. These butteflies are quite common and are found all over North America in the summer months. Unlike the monarch who may migrate both north and south, these ladies only migrate one way. The image below shows the underside of the wing with small eyespots that are characteristic of this specie. They even have a feminine specie name, Vanessa. til Tomorrow MJ
