Male Orangetip

By Glostopcat  
A handome male orangetip butterfly I saw on the edge of Manor Road Community Woodland in Keynsham a couple of weeks ago when I was visiting the area for work. This shot was taken in strong sunlight which is a rarity these days!

This Orange Tip is stunning and well isolated from the foliage.
I'd love to see one of these!

Such a pleasure to see the Orange Tip but alas we have plenty of bluebells and wild garlic, the wind is so cold . Although we get the occasional bursts of Sunshine, we don't see these beautiful butterflies very often . You have done a great job of isolating the Orange Tip. xx
