Painted Lady

    Newer Older

    There has been an influx of thousands of these butterflies into England over the last few days. They have migrated here, through Europe, from North Africa!

    This is just one of probably about 30 that have been nectaring in my garden - they like the Red Valerian best!

      Wow... fabulous, Polly! I hope some of those Painted Ladies make their way up to East Anglia! I did see one or two here a few years ago. They are lovely!
