These images of the Australian Painted Lady were taken a few days ago with the Nikon D3000, on auto. Many smaller butterflies have arrived and I’m guessing they’re juveniles. I have never experienced so many butterflies all at the one time like this before! So many species of all sizes flitting about at all levels. I was fortunate to spot that Lesser Wanderer when I did for, apparently, my milk thistles aren’t attractive after all.
I can’t stop taking photos of the Painted Ladies. I was trying to get some different angles when I noticed the sunlight lighting the back of this one with a golden sheen.
I made these images a little bigger and using the image posting format.
Thanks for looking. Do have a good weekend.
