I have been delighted to see and photo capture these (Vanessa virginiensis) in our gardens and fields earlier this spring than in previous years.

American Lady is an appropriate name for it seeing its majestic aura that it gives despite it’s ordinary looking wings. They’re actually mysterious types of beings that it does keep the photographers interested in learning more about them.

Thanks Nina! Recently I have had many Painted Ladies in the gardens and there are tons of folks reporting sightings of hundreds all over Mass. More climate change migration.
