Tough life of a Painted Lady



Get up close to a butterfly and you better appreciate the tough life they must have. Looks like someone took a chomp out of his/her right wing; I think this is a Painted Lady, the very common butterfly seen around Southern California.




Taken with my Nikon D5100 and Nikon DX 85mm micro lens at the Huntington Gardens in San Marino.
