Hi Carol,

Lovely pair of shots. Love both the butterfly and the rather attractive seed head it's resting on in the first image (which is my favourite).

One thing though - it's not an Orange Tip. It's actually a Dappled White. Probably Eastern Dappled White looking at my book here and probably also male not female. It's still stunning whatever it is though Smile

That is an unusual seedhead! Almost looks like the edges are tipped with frost! The butterfly is amazingly detailed with the hairs so tactile.
