Painted Lady Dwarfed by Flowers

We’ve had backyard visits from Painted Lady butterflies this week-first time I’ve seen them here this year. They’re small compared to Monarchs and Swallowtails, but slightly larger than the Cabbage White, currently the most common butterfly in our yard. These close ups–same shot–accentuate their  “dwarf” size.

On a side note: our dogs chase flies but not butterflies while humming birds simply stun them.
