Painted lady butterfly (Vanessa cardui)

Fletcher Wildlife Garden

Most reports of painted ladies indicate that they are favouring asters to nectar on, not surprising given the preponderance of this species. In other sites I have seen them on dandelions and on red clover too, and here at the FWG, they've also been found on sunflowers in the butterfly mneadow.
