Her wings are easily damaged, which means she is most unlikely to have a long life.

Qu'il est beau !
Ray: C'est une très jolie visiteuse, Martine.
the beauty in your frame is almost overwhelming. cannot think of a way to top it, Ray.
Ray: A lovely thing, Ayush...one of my favourite visitors.
She's a stunner... as are your photos, Ray!
Ray: I enjoy welcoming guests like this to our garden, Elizabeth.
That's sad...
Ray: She lives her life
Like a candle in the wind...

Poor little thing, reminding us all of life's transience. But she's beautiful while she lasts.
Ray: I hope she finds some refuge and contentment in our garden, Ginnie. smile
Un vraie merveille ephemère helas ...
Merci Ray
Bonne journée
Ray: Oui ... Je pense que sa fragilité fait partie de sa beauté, Claudine ... Une sorte de syndrome d'Edith Piaf.

You are lucky to have this guest in your garden, what a great photo-op. Love the details on the butterfly. Beautiful pictures, great DOF.
Ray: A subtle beauty here, Astrid...quite the opposite of tomorrow's post.

In your words, totally gorgeous even though frayed, ray
Ray: It is not easy to find a pristine specimen, Lisl.

But in her short span she has given us great pleasure, and hopefully she has laid some eggs so that the next generation will continue to delight..
Ray: Yes...I often find myself wishing that they have achieved Nature's purpose, Chris.
They are beautiful ephemera Ray
Ray: Sometimes the frail things have a special beauty, Bill.

When this photograph was being steadily unveiled on my screen, I thought it was going to be fungus. Now I see that it is our old friend Fungus the butterfly.
Ray: Wait for it...
Drum roll please...
It's...

Fungus Flutterby!

It spends its time looking very pretty, though. Another cracking photo.
Ray: It is certainly welcome in my garden, Alan.

Two great shots of her. As life goes on for a butterfly, they damage their wings.
Ray: This is true, Louis. All the individuals of this species, that I have seen, have damaged wings.
With these tones, said butterfly carries excellent camo abilities. With the thousands of painted ladies visiting in Sept - Oct, I noticed also that they became more ragged as time went on.
Ray: We have a couple of species that never seem damaged...of course it is possible those ones cannot function with ragged wings.
She is a really lovely creature.
Ray: A pleasure to see a few of them in the garden at the moment, Brian.
