[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui)
A common butterfly, recorded in all weeks of the year in Cyprus. Usually seen only in single numbers, but very occasionally present in vast numbers. In exceptional years, such as 2001, many millions were seen migrating north to Turkey. An estimated 42 million butterflies passed through Cyprus on an island-wide front during this migration.
