Painted Ladies...
THE RECENT fires and heavy smoke had a beautiful and unexpected side effect in Surprise Valley, unexpected visitors. They were all named Vanessa. Thousands of Painted Ladies filled the air and yards of valley residents. These small colorful butterflies most likely came out of the mountains to avoid the fires and get a drink and a breath of fairly fresh air. For a couple of days the butterflies almost had to be shoved aside to walk anywhere. Vanessa Cardui or Painted Lady is the most widely dispersed butterfly in the world. As the days went by the prolific numbers of Painted Lady butterflies decreased, but still seemed to be everywhere. As their numbers waned, other butterflies of every color began to appear. They seemed to be enjoying some nectar and a sip of water in the otherwise smoke filled air. Photo by Jean Bilodeaux
