Painted Lady (Vanessa Cardui) in Whiteley Village

The Painted Lady is a North African species that migrates to Great Britain and much of Europe in the summer. In some years this migration can be spectacularly large, covering almost every part of the British Isles and individuals can be seen almost any place where there are flowers, either wild or cultivated. However they cannot tolerate our winters so, even if they mate and oviposit, or pupate here, they do not survive.
