STOPS ALONG THE WAY

PAINTED LADY BUTTERFLIES (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

28 Comments

A steep path through the woods led to an open field. We often stop by hoping to spot something interesting. It was late October and we hadn’t expected to see butterflies and especially not in the numbers we did that afternoon. I spotted one, then another, painted ladies were everywhere. It seems we were on their migration path last fall as they headed south. Luckily we were out that day and saw them too.

  5. Great Lady shots! 🙂 They seem to be one of the more playful species; they like to chase each other back and forth and such…

  13. Love painted ladies! Some years in the UK we have a huge migration from Africa, they then stay and breed in massive numbers before heading south. Other years we have very few.
