As I was taking some pictures of my last Orange Tip, a second male came flying and wanted to pose on the same Cuckoo-flower, even if there were many others around.
It was funny to look at both of them, because it looked more like some courtship than a real territorial defense.
Finally they both took place and faced each other on the flower.
I wonder what they were talking about...

Hello Anne...

I think they were discussing the most flavorful flower in the neighborhood. Which reminds me... I'm hungry... ;)

Excellent capture Anne... beautifully seen and wonderfully presented here. TFS.

Liebe Anne,
Apollo und Aurora-Falter sing offenbar ganz gegensätzliche Typen. Während dir die ersteren immer entwischen und die letzteren ruhig vor deiner Kamera verharren, ist es bei mir genau umgekehrt. Gerade eben ist mir wieder ein Aurora im Garten entfleucht.
Die kleine Männerrunde hast du erfolgreich belauscht und scharf abgelichtet.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

welcome again for everytime. they are very very beautiful, from one of my favourite butterflies. I am pleasure to see more. a couple Orange Tip look very beautiful. you are lucky, Anne. greatly captured them with great focus, POV/DOF and composition. coloration also superb. thanks for sharing, best wishes

Hi Anne

Great composition of these two orange-tips eyeing each other off. Being two males, they were probably talking about about the girls they'd seen that day!!


Hallo Anne
A delightful view with a splendour of colours all in one. It is lovely to see the difference of the inner and outer wings of any butterfly and these ones are no exception. The patterns and markings on the wings are really spectacular and your photography has brought it out to its best. All around a super image with lots of style. Another image with a feminine touch. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Anne,
A nice capture of these orange tips. Very good composition. Sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.
