What an interesting butterfly! Moths, as far as I know Rob, are "fly-by-nights" and butterflies fly by day. This painted lady seems to taste the flower. They actually do it with their feet! :)

Nice capture. Aren't they actually moths?

Ken, the Painted Lady (Vanessa Cardui), also called the Cosmopolitan in North America is smaller but similarly colored as Monarch butterflies. Their flight paths and migratory patterns are different than Monarchs . This summer and fall have seen a plethora of Painted Ladies in the midwestern states.

Painted ladies migrate like monarch butterflies, don't they?

Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over....it became a butterfly. The wonders of the natural world. :)
