Thank you to everyone who voted/commented on my previous upload of a Dipper, including the User Awards from JuBarney, J_Caswell, Alan_Baseley, royd63uk, Alfotto and bricurtis, all really appreciated as usual

Here are 2 Male Orange Tip Butterflies that I was fortunate to capture together. Taken at Chasewater Country Park, Staffordshire, UK.

Well spotted and caught! (There'll be no little caterpillars that way!)

I like the way their antennae are crossing, and wonder what they are communicating to each other.
A beautifully sharp capture of the pair.
