...thought the painted lady and headed right to Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street in Nizhny Novgorod. Where it was caught red-handed, naturally.

Butterflies flew to Nizhny Novgorod (in Russian)

No, you are the painted lady! ;)

Evgeny, let's admit that if that was really painted lady, the total impression wouldn't be that complete. Here we have a perfect composition of the event, and the book that was used for identifying, and the "correct" ID, and the butterflies' "life in paradise" in the Nizhny Novgorod Butterfly House. Nizhny Novgorod TV rules, what to say. To memories! To speak seriously, it's a big shame to the Nizhny Novgorod Butterfly House, clearly they made this wrong identification, neither the TV host nor the heroine...

Agree. :) Where only they found such a heroine... ;)

Time to add the new subspecies Vanessa cardui ssp. nizhegorodskaya (Dusya) that throws herself at feet))

Look what a sparkling life they live in Nizhny Novgorod, not the ones you do in your moscows.

Quietly jealous aside and start looking below our feet thoroughly :)))

Feel jealous! Yes, we have it here!

Why.... There is in the very beginning a wild overwintered xanthomelas, seems that is the main heroine. Want to stand up for journalists: they apparently aren't interested in ubiquitous species. But why did they call it painted lady?:)
Dmitry, seems it's a thaw you've got there? I haven't seen any N. xanthomelas yet. Hopefully soon: they will fly out in masses :)

No any thaw here. Was at the weekend, but now it's minus 8 C. I saw that was xanthomelas back then and already told those guys of their poor qualification.

The same is here: now minus 7C and lots of snow, forecasters don't seem to promise increasing temperatures till the end of March. With all that butterfly hunt will be possible not than in a month........... Sad.

No biggies, won't take long. Month ago I already caught something, just one month to go.
