Medium sized 45 mm .Very slow when on the ground. The larvae feed on any plants will find this friendly Painted lady near fruit trees and in winter on the ground between dead leaves. This one escaped a few birds. Has been through a lot. And is still here I cried when I saw it today it looked like it was in pain. A little of balance but it still is happy at 5 pm it was looking for a place under leafs for the nite. I really hope to see it tomorrow. It’s cold and the butterflies and Moths are slowly disappeared. I will miss them but it time for the their cycle in nature to begin . Some will die some will life longer. That’s life not everything lives forever.
