Painted Lady

By Howard2  
For the avid followers, like me, of Dudler and KDC this title is going to prove a disappointment. It will not be what you think. Online I have learned today that hordes of these butterflies are on the wing in the UK, and when I saw a close-up of one I realised that I have a picture taken years ago but only now know what she is. So - this is as close as I get to a Painted Lady.

The flower looks like a drinking vessel.
Nice one.

It's a lovely photo - but it's a Malaysian Lacewing! Smile
