European Painted Lady

The European Painted Lady is a very common butterfly during the warmer summer and autumn months. They gather in large numbers on ourĀ  Lavender bushes, frequent the Buddlieas and bask in the warm sun on the lawn, orchard grasses, dirt and gravel areas.

The photographs on the Lavender were taken early May, 2010, while the butterfly captured on the Buddliea was taken in March, 2011.

The European Painted Lady is a common garden butterfly throughout Albury, and up at least as far as Wagga to the north.
