Australian Painted Lady, an 'urban' butterfly that migrates from N.S.W. in great numbers in spring, moving on a front that extends for about 580 km inland from the coast. (Aust. Museum). That's 360 miles! I had no idea butterflies achieved this; no wonder some might look a little tattered.
Trying to get a photo while the wings were open was next to impossible too, they seemed to only open them momentarily, and then closed again..
The Australian Museum website here reports that in 1889, this butterfly migrated in such great numbers that they blackened the sky. Trains were unable to get traction because of them resting on the tracks!
