Orange County CA: Rainy Year Brings Flying Painted Ladies PDF Print E-mail


Way back a century or two ago, when the West was rootin’ and tootin’, painted ladies were not high society. However, there’s a breed of butterflies today with the same name. And they’re just as pretty as their historic human counterparts, and maybe a bit more flighty.

Because of the region’s unusually wet season this year, millions of the colorful insects now swarm over meadows, gardens, parks and deserts of Southern California. If your travels take you to destinations in Orange County and nearby, be sure to bring your camera and smartphone for capturing great selfies and other creative images.
