A Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) feeding on the Alfalfa in the field near my motor shop. It was the one and only I saw this summer.
Thanks for your comments and votes on the strange bud. I think Joline got it right, it has to be a triffid! Didn't find any better ID. I might have to ask Pamelajean.
I promise herewith to refrain from filters. ... It was a product of a rainy lunch break.
