|Painted lady - Vanessa cardui - Vanessa del cardo (I)|
Flight Time: April - October.
A strong migrant which boosts its populations in northern Europe by annual migrations from its breeding grounds in the south. It seems not to be able to survive the winter further north, so it is scarce some years, common others.
Only possible confusion is with the extremely rare migrant Vanessa virginiensis which has to come from north America, which it does very, very rarely.
Pictured right is a young caterpillar, very characteristic with its three rows of golden spikes.

Ciao Angelo, mi piace la composizione, bravo!
Nice job with this, I like the POV and framing.
Great light, detail, and natural color.
To nit pick, perhaps more DOF to bring the wings in more would be better.
Well done and TFS!
ottima foto Angelo.
