Painted lady out for lunch

By Eddie91    
After seeing all the news about the huge numbers of painted lady butterflies arriving in Britain this last couple of weeks they turned up yesterday in our garden and this morning were out feeding on the Buddleias, lovely to see and yes lots to see. Smile

Thanks also for all the comments, votes and UA's on the last photo of Amber in full flight Wink

Beautiful image here. And yes, they seem to have arrived - had nine on my buddleia in Yorkshire today 🙂 two more resting on the gravel drive in the sun 😴
Such plucky little butterflies on their mega journey which I believe starts in Africa!
