The Marbled White was the first sighting of the year for me. 
It was the only one and in high wind was difficult to keep up with.

  1. Roy This series of Butterflies is fantastic. You are so good at capturing them I know not an easy job as the oones I see usually are travveling at the speed of light!

  2. You have been rather lucky with your Butterflies, and wonderfully photographed, as we have not round here. Had my first Butterfly of the year in the garden on Saturday, which caused great excitement...a Speckled Wood

  3. Lots of lovely photos here - especially like the one of the male and female orange tip. So far I haven't seen many butterflies this year, just odd ones here and there.

  6. Well done on still having orange tips about - they were around for about a week here then disappeared. Skippers are fun. Can never tell the large from small and end up guessing half the time!

    1. Thanks Alison, probably as they are usually a little ahead of us in butterfly arrivals.

  12. Lovely collection - I haven't seen any Orange Tips for a while now, so guess they are done for the year. Nice seeing the summer flutters appearing. :-)
