• This 11 oz. cup features a Painted Lady butterfly perched on a chrysanthemum. As a science illustrator, I always aim to offer information about my subject matter! The text on the other side of the cup reads:

    Painted Lady Butterfly

    Vanessa cardui

    The lovely painted lady butterfly is very common, and can be found on five of the seven continents.

    This species has an unusual "iruptive" migration pattern, which means it migrates independent of season and geography. It is known for its ability to fly as far as 100 miles a day during migration, reaching speeds of 30 miles per hour.


    Domestic shipping included.
