Welcome to this meme active every Friday. The theme is "Friday Greens" and you can post images, art, photos where the predominant colour is GREEN!
GREEN is the colour between blue and yellow in the spectrum; coloured like grass or emeralds.
The Australian Painted Lady butterfly shown here, Vanessa kershawi, can easily be mistaken for its cosmopolitan relative Vanessa cardui. In V. kershawi however 3 of the ocelli on the hindwings have prominent blue centres, and the hindwings also have a blackish apex that in confluent with the 4th (upper) ocellus. Vanessa kershawi is found throughout most of Australia. It occurs as a regular breeding migrant in lowland areas of New Zealand but does not survive winters there.

Erysimum cheiri syn. Cheiranthus cheiri (common name "wallflower") is a species of flowering plant in the family Brassicaceae (Cruciferae), native to Europe but widespread as an introduced species elsewhere. It is also widely cultivated as a garden plant. It is known as giroflée and ravenelle in French, Goldlack in German, alhelí in Spanish and violacciocca in Italian.
