Have you seen the many butterflies, believe they are Painted Ladies, counted 50 in 1 minute.
When for a walk/bike ride in the hills and saw even more, and trying to get in better shape.
They seemed mostly to be going in south westerly direction. Also varied redder types and some more buf brownish. Met someone else walking there mentioned walking a trail as going around a
curve , a cloud of butterflies came off a shrub Just went out to take a photo and only found 1 and camera battery died. Wonder where they go at night and where their final destination is.
This one found on walk and it was missing part of wing, so brought home to put on flowers and give it water.
