[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Painted Lady group of colourful butterflies comprises the subgenus Cynthia of the genus Vanessa in the Family Nymphalidae. They are well known throughout most of the world.

The group includes:

* the Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui), which is almost global in its distribution
* Australian Painted Lady (Vanessa kershawi)
* American Painted Lady (Vanessa virginiensis)
* West Coast Lady (Vanessa annabella).
In general, the Painted Lady is a large butterfly (wing span 5-9 cm (2 - 2 7/8 in)) identified by the black and white corners of its mainly deep orange, black-spotted wings. It has 5 white spots in the black forewing tips and while the orange areas may be pale here and there, there are no clean white dots in them. The hindwings carry 4 small submarginal eyespots on dorsal and ventral sides. Those on the dorsal side are black, but in the summer morph sometimes small blue pupils are present in some.

Hi Dan.
Pictured scene cannot be more wonderful. Both flowers and natural BG create a nice scene for beautiful butterfly. I like impressive lighting, great details of the main subject and nice blurriness of the BG. Composition of the shot as well as selected POV are spot on too. Bravo. Well done.
