David and Frances sent in this photo taken on 20/09/2019 of a rather tatty Painted Lady which they tell us has been in their garden for a few days.  It has spent it’s time re-fuelling on Buddleia and despite it’s condition has still been capable of strong flight – this is one determined butterfly battling to survive for as long as possible.
