It has turned so bitterly cold that I have no inclination whatsoever to trawl around the meadow for critters that are obviously hiding from the wind and rain, so another from the archives, a female orange tip resting on a rather unusual seed-head. I hve only ever seen one of these females here, and a sprinkling of males.

UPDATE: Thanks, John (fishiee) for giving me the correct ID

Hi Carol,

Lovely pair of shots. Love both the butterfly and the rather attractive seed head it's resting on in the first image (which is my favourite).

One thing though - it's not an Orange Tip. It's actually a Dappled White. Probably Eastern Dappled White looking at my book here and probably also male not female. It's still stunning whatever it is though Smile
