Painted Lady on Blazing Star
I never realized just how much of an insect magnet Northern Blazing Star is. The stands of Blazing Star on the Kennebunk Plains Wildlife Management Area are full of Monarch and Painted Lady Butterflies, bees, beatles, etc. This Painted Lady would not open her wings for me…but even the backside is beautiful.
