[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Vanessa Cardui is one of the most widespread of all butterflies, found on every continent except Antarctica and South America.[1] 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).

Hallo Brendon
Great shot of this beautiful Vanessa Cardui butterfly. Great point of view showing the prominent details of its face very clearly. The overall colours are lovely. Best regards and thanks for sharing.
