Really Orange

Well things are looking good on the Orange Tip front. Yesterday I found two males flying around at one location and at least two more elsewhere.
I was also fortunate that they were pitching on a nice blue flower for effect.
At the same time I found a 'Small White' Butterfly which will be the subject of a separate post.

  5. Hey Roy... Just gorgeous shots, but yours usually are. The colors are so vivid.
    Do you know what the flowering plant is?

    1. Thanks GG. Yes the plant is called Green Alkanet or to be really technical "Pentaglottis sempervirens"
      Its a perennial and flowers April to July.
