A Painted Lady Butterfly just emerged from chrysalis after approximately 7~10 days. It takes an hour or two to dry off and stretch its wings. After the wings harden, it is about to explore a whole new world! Painted ladies are found in most part of the United States, Europe, Canada, Asia and South Africa. Their worldwide distribution account for the common name ‘Cosmopolitan Butterfly’After two or more generations, adult butterflies hibernate and may survive the winter. Occasionally painted ladies survive winter temperatures in their chrysalis, suspended between caterpillar and butterfly.The total life span of a painted lady is 12 months from egg to death in the wild.Join me @shravanregretiyer and explore ‘This is America’ all new series.
