VANESSA CARDUI
The Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui) is a well-known colourful butterfly, sometimes known in North America as the Cosmopolitan.It is one of the most widespread of all butterflies, found on every continent except Antarctica. In Australia, V. cardui has a limited range around Bunbury, Fremantle and Rottnest Island. However, its close relative, the Australian Painted Lady (Vanessa kershawi, sometimes considered a subspecies) ranges over half the continent. Other closely related species are the American Painted Lady (Vanessa virginiensis), and the West Coast Lady (Vanessa annabella).The Painted Lady occurs in any temperate zone, including mountains in the tropics. The species is resident only in warmer areas, but migrates in spring, and sometimes again in autumn. For example, it migrates from North Africa and the Mediterranean to Britain in May and June, but offspring produced there die in the Autumn.Painted Lady butterflies are popular for many pre-school and kindergarten classes to raise in schools to demonstrate the life cycle of a butterfly. Painted ladies are very popular with children. They are used in many science fair projects. Several insect distribution companies such as Insect Lore include Painted Lady caterpillars in their catalogue of live insects for ordering.The egg takes 3 to 5 days to hatch. The caterpillar takes 7-11 days to turn into a chrysalis. It takes 7-11 days for the chrysalis to turn into a butterfly. It doesn't stay in one area so long. The painted lady butterfly moves 1000 miles in its life. Its wing span is 2 in. The painted lady caterpillar is black with spiked skin.The caterpillars feed on a wide variety of host plants of the families Asteraceae, especially Carduus crispus (as implied by the species name cardui Latin for "of the thistles"). Also, Boraginaceae, Malvaceae (especially hollyhocks and dwarf mallow Malva neglecta), and a number of Fabaceae are eaten. The adults drink nectar from a variety of wildflowers and cultivars, more commonly the favored thistle, butterfly bush (Buddleja), asters, Tickseed sunflowers (Bidens) and zinnias.

VANESSA CARDUI
La Vanessa del cardo 癡 farfalla di dimensioni rispettabili, raggiungendo una apertura alare di circa 60mm, ed 癡 una delle pi羅 note e studiate in assoluto, non solo nella nostra fauna.
La sua fama 癡 dovuta al fatto di essere una notevole migratrice che, grazie alla potenza del suo volo, pu簷 compiere degli spostamenti enormi; infatti, con l'esclusione del Sudamerica, si pu簷 rinvenire in tutto il mondo.Le sue abitudini la portano a frequentare soprattutto terreni incolti e prati fioriti, in localit molto calde ed assolate, ma anche radure e margini dei boschi,come pure giardini e parchi urbani, sia in pianura che in montagna, fino al limite estremo della vegetazione.La sua abbondanza 癡 estremamente variabile di anno in anno, cosa che pu簷 essere da sporadica a molto comune, come avviene in alcune annate, in relazione ai flussi migratori.A seconda dei climi presenta una o pi羅 generazioni annue, dalla primavera alla tarda estate, e si riproduce anche alle nostre latitudini, tramite gli individui che giungono annualmente dalle zone pi羅 calde. I bruchi si nutrono di diverse essenze, con una spiccata predilezione per le Carduacee, nonch癡 per le ortiche.

Hello Luciano,
Great macro of this Painted Lady in superb sharpness and details. Splendid natural colours.
Regards,
Peter

Hi Luciano,
Eventhough this species is much more spectacular with open wings, your pic is excellent as the lighting makes it unique. Proper flash usage and exposure, great contrast. Nice photo overall - probably a bit more saturation would make it even better on the wings selectively?
Kind regards from Ireland, L獺szl籀

Nicely done friend Luciano .. however I feel that the highlights can be slightly uplifted ! Wonderful gentle creature otherwise :) Please ..see the Workshop for reference ! Have a great day Luciano friend !!!
Regards
George Veltchev
