The painted lady is an extraordinary butterfly with an epic life. Weighing an average of one and a half grams and with brains the size of a pinhead they can easily fly more than 4000 kilometres from all over Europe to the tropical African savannah every autumn. Why? How do they know the way? Over the centuries, the discoveries made by lepidopterists and artists have unravelled the mysteries of the fascinating life of this global traveller.
