Painted Lady Butterfly on New England Asters

Posted by karla (Omaha, United States) on 9 October 2017 in Animal & Insect.

Autumn, continued. The painted lady butterfly (Vanessa cardui) and a bee are nectaring their last on the New England asters. The weather has finally turned cool after an unusually warm Fall. The aster blossoms are turning to seed. Soon there will be no more nectar available.

Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.
