Painted Lady

Our rosemary bush is still attracting butterflies. Here is a painted lady, Vanessa cardui, photo taken today, November 29. Painted ladies are the most widely distributed butterfly species in the world, found on every continent except Australia and Antarctica. Some of them migrate long distances.

This one has lost a small portion of hindwing.
