Often mistaken for Monarch Butterflies, the Painted Lady is a little smaller and not quite as vibrant.
The Boltonia bushes in our backyard were blanketed with Painted Lady butterflies this fall. Swarms of them were our guests for 2-3 weeks, which is amazing since their lifespan is not much longer than that.
We were blessed to witness the spectacular beauty of their brief life.

One thought on “Painted Ladies”
We have enjoyed the painted ladies in our yard also. Boltonia is a new bush to us–very pretty! H
