The Painted Lady butterflies can be found in many parts of the world. The butterflies live in warm climates. They can cover about 100 miles a day during their migration. They say that the painted lady can fly at times up to 30 miles per hour.
They do not migrate to warmer climates in the winter months like most other butterflies. When the weather turn cold they will die.
The painted lady caterpillar’s favorite food plant is the thistle, a weed.
