Cool June surprise

I cannot remember such a protracted period of cool weather in June. All the more surprising then to see this Painted lady, on Ocean Edge salt marsh.
The picture above was taken at 10:00. After lunch, there was a short down pour. I had a quick check of harbour area after that (14:30) and located another six Painted lady on a 20m stretch between the lighthouse and waterfall. Clearly there has been a significant and/or concentrated movement.
