Painted Lady on Amsinckia

This painted lady really seemed to like the Amsinckia blossoms. While taking pictures, it got spooked, but it came right back.

This plant is endangered. I photographed the UC Bot Garden sign so you can read about it. If you look closely at the pic, you can see why it is called fiddleneck: the buds curl into a spiral, looking a bit like the head of a violin.
