[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
So named because of the male's bright orange tips to his forewings. The males are a common sight in spring flying along hedgerows and damp meadows in search of the more reclusive female which lacks the orange and is often mistaken for one of the other 'White' butterflies. The undersides are mottled green and white and create a superb camouflage when settled on flowerheads such as Cow Parsley and Garlic Mustard Alliaria petiolata.

Hello Szabo,
A beautiful composition showing the little Orange Tip nicely in focus on a budding flower. I like its pose and the sharp focus on the eye. A lovely soft green background too.
