The painted lady butterfly on the front of this eco-friendly greeting card was seen feeding on thistle nectar during an early-morning sortie in the Patterdale Valley in the Lake District National Park. That particular summer, the painted lady population was particularly high, making them a common sight throughout the Lake District’s lush, green valleys.
If you would like to get lost in a literary world of butterflies then you may wish to read the following piece of nature writing: ‘A Peacock Butterfly‘.
