Painted Lady and Purple Sage

Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) and Balkan Sage
There must have been at least thirty "ladies" dancing about in a clump of Balkan sage around a corner in the village this week. Beau and I stopped for a few minutes on the way home from our morning walk to watch them flutter exuberantly about, a perfect marriage of purple and orange, two of my favorite colors.

Alas, it was a windy morning, and most of the images we captured were fuzzy - there was  only a single acceptable capture.

She's a beauty...or maybe he. Funny to think of a Mr. Painted Lady!

I have ever seen them in my garden

I have managed to capture hundreds of butterfly photos this year and really need to go in and delete, delete, delete. Yours looks like a spring morning.
