Quite a few of these medium size orange brown butterflies in the garden lately. They like to eat the nectars of the mauve African daisies. Apparently, what differs an Australian native painted lady butterfly ( Vanessa kershawi ) from other painted lady butterflies is the bluish colour of the center of the spots on the back wings.
