American Painted Lady
Vanessa cardui 2-2 1/2 inches

It seem there are other versions of the Painted Lady---The book says the 'American Painted Lady' displays large eye spots. This one turned up with the monarchs yesterday...

Thank you for your interest in the Monarch and especially to Ann, Dave, Martin Sandy and Lavina for their wonderful User Awards!

This does look different from what I recognise as a painted lady here in GB,
but I'm no authority - it looks extremely beautiful Jenn - great to see all these species.
