Very beautiful close-up. Stunning detail and colour.
A cracker to start your season. Do they get the orange tip at a later stage or is it hidden by the folded wings?

I have my newish 105 macro ready and am determined to bag a few this year....if they approach this good I will have cracked it.
Only seen an express train Brimstone so far...mind you never saw 1 last year.

Nice one.

I've been teased by an Organge Tip this morning - I've been cleaning up outside and it kept fluttering by, trying to tempt me to fetch the camera. I did watch it, but it really wasn't going to settle down.

You've caught this one brilliantly, gorgeous colours.

Lovely shot John! Your trademark clarity back into action...

... your Sigma must have needed a good dusting off... it's been a while!

Actually this is a Green-Tip butterfly... Anthocharis verde... sorry to be picky... but you can tell by the distinct lack of orange on the wings... Wink ha ha!

Those of you who might take me seriously would be mistaken!
