Tattered Traveller!

I went walking one summer’s day… and came across a tattered traveller. Well, actually, I went for a short stroll yesterday afternoon. Only one reason… to chase butterflies! What really struck me about this file fella was the state of the wings! I have a feeling this baby flew a long way! Yep, they’re known to migrate as far as North Africa! We’ve been having a few days of south-easterly/ westerly winds so… who knows? I did ask but (s)he was too pooped to bother about me.

I’ll add another photo I managed to get while the butterfly was hopping about on the food! Bad manners? Again, who knows? I must say… it was a pleasure to spend a few minutes in the company of the tattered traveller!

  1. Hi AJ, you get these butterfiies in SA as well. I see them in my garden often.

    Poor thing, coming all this way, she looks exhausted. At least she got a warm welcome from your garden.

    Lovely, even if it is a bit worn. Are you doing any monitoring for the butterfly atlas?
