Painted Lady resting in late afternoon sun

August 19, 2019

 

A Painted Lady Vanessa cardui spent a good fifteen minutes resting in the late afternoon sun.

The leaf of a Tiger Eye abutilon plant in dappled light seemed to be the perfect place to be.

 

Although one of the wings is a little tattered, it is still a beautiful butterfly, always striking when it is in flight.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These butterflies look so different in profile because their underside of their wings have the brownish, grayish mosaic pattern.
