Here are some facts for you John, not that I know anything, but wikipedia does; I was surprised at this.............

The painted lady is an irruptive migrant, meaning itís a species that migrates independent of any seasonal or geographic patterns. Some evidence suggests that painted lady migrations may be linked to the El NiŮo climate pattern.

When conditions are right, the painted lady migration may number in the hundreds of thousands of individuals. The population that moves from North Africa to Europe includes millions of butterflies. Painted ladies fly low when migrating, usually only 6 to 12 feet above the ground. This makes them highly visible to butterfly watchers, but also rather susceptible to colliding with cars.

These medium-sized butterflies can cover a lot of ground, up to 100 miles per day during their migration. A painted lady is capable of reaching a speed of nearly 30 miles per hour. Painted ladies reach northern areas well ahead of some of their more famous migrating cousins, like the monarch butterflies.

The painted lady inhabits every continent except Australia and Antarctica. You can find painted ladies everywhere from meadows to vacant lots. It's sometimes called the cosmopolitan butterfly, because of its global distribution.

This is a great image of Grandad; how do you get them to pose for youGrin
