Lovely picture. Pretty sure I haven't seen a Painted Lady yet this year. But, while there's sunshine, there's hope!
Thank you Jeremy. The only other Painted Ladies I've seen this year were when we were on holiday on the Isle of Wight.
Lovely pic Caroline, always great to see one of these in the garden :-)
Thanks David - slowly getting the hang of the Canon Bridge Camera! Very useful for shots like this!!
I just saw one in the garden and they are always a welcome sight. We do get them every year although some years there are more than others. I have never seen a Ringlet but understand they are quite common in the UK, however I'm surprised you didn't have any Meadow Browns. But Painted Ladies are prettier so congrats! :-)
Pleased to hear you've seen one ;) They are so pretty and delicate looking. We always seem to get more Gatekeepers in the garden than Meadow Browns but usually I see a few of the latter. Ringlet was a surprise visitor last year - only occasional visitors although there is a patch of common land not far away and there are dozens of them there!
