A small window of opportunity appeared late afternoon yesterday (weather wise) and I went for a brief walk along the main ride in The Coppice, where I came across this male Orange-tip Anthocharis cardamines, nectaring on Garlic Mustard, which incidentally is one of the main food sources of the caterpillar

Last day of the mini holiday, so I hope you are all still enjoying it. At least the weather is a tad improved, so I am off out later, to check out my local patch at Twywell

Your orange tip has chosen a flower to match - much as I love butterflies they sometimes don't
get their colour schemes right! Beautiful and a GEA already!!
