An Orange Celebration (Part One)

Orange Tip Butterflies are quite numerous now in the areas that I observe.
They have appeared over the last week and especially the females have now emerged which are usually a little later than the males. Not a colonising species they roam over some distance.

In this first part I have included both male and female of the species. The male of course has the orange tip to their wings, the female has a grey washed out tip. Both sexes have the mottled underwing markings.

The second part to this two-part post provides more action between the male and female. 


  1. An interesting blog with great pictures. Cheers.

  2. Gorgeous pictures Rooy and if you look at them, they are even more beautiful!
