[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Orange-tip is a true sign of spring, being one of the first species to emerge that has not overwintered as an adult.

The male and female of this species are very different in appearance. The more-conspicuous male has orange tips to the forewings, that give this butterfly its name. These orange tips are absent in the female and the female is often mistaken for one of the other whites, especially the Green-veined White or Small White.

Subspecies: britannica

This subspecies is found throughout the British Isles, with the exception of Ireland.

Subspecies: hibernica

This subspecies represents the population found in Ireland. It differs from the britannica subspecies by being slightly smaller, and with minor colour differences.
