According to Facebook page “Monarch Butterflies in the Pacific Northwest”, Painted Ladies are headed our way.
“Not a Monarch, but another butterfly that migrates to the PNW from climes to the south. The Painted Lady is sometimes very common during summer in the PNW while in other years hardly any are seen. 2015 could be one of the ‘boom’ years with multiple reports of good numbers already being seen in southern Oregon. Let us know if you see any ‘ladies’ in your area!”
