What a great shot!
Wonderful comp and detail!
Excellent side view shot of it. I've read that painted ladies are some of the most globally widespread butterflies.
Painted ladies certainly get around. We have an annual migration of painted ladies in California. (Typical of political correctness, there was actually a move in one state in the U.S. to change the butterfly's name! To what????)
