Painted Lady

Painted Lady (Vanessa Cardui)

I think Vanessa Cardui (the Painted Lady butterfly's Latin name) would make a great stage name. Hollywood here I come!

This Painted Lady was sipping goldenrod nectar and would barely stay still, in a feeding frenzy to drink as much in as possible while the sun was shining.

Another view

Hmmm. Was the butterfly trying to tell me something?

I am linking to Saturday Critters HERE.
