At last !!!!

At last……a Painted Lady in the garden. Adults are first seen in late March as they start to arrive on our shores and numbers build up in May and June as further migrants arrive from the continent. These breed and give rise to the next generation that peaks in early August. This was a very fresh specimen and also a very hungry one – it fed on the buddleia for a good couple of hours.Painted Lady 1
