The Painted Lady.

Yesterday we were joined onboard by the beautiful painted lady (Vanessa cardui)

I've read this butterfly species travels 12,000km and crosses the Sahara Desert twice to seasonally exploit resources and favourable climates on both sides of the desert.

This is the longest migratory flight known in butterflies to date.
