I have mentioned to you before the dearth of butterflies up here but interestingly I did come across this diminutive one fluttering about in PCP recently and got a couple of shots. I don't recall seeing it on site here before although my memory may be letting me down. Nice to see your takes on the Orange Tip, Fred.

A lovely set of images of this handsome male orangetip on a cuckoo flower, it is good to see that they are still about after the awful weather we've been having recently
