Orange Tip

By NigelKiteley
Thanks very much for the votes and comments on the Green Hairstreak and especially to DerekL for his valued UA, all are truly appreciated.

Here's another male Orange Tip photographed last week. I went in search of skippers today but to no avail,however i did locate 8 roosting Orange Tips late this afternoon along a local canal tow path. No chance for photography as it was pouring with rain and the light was dreadful so i guess i'll be returning in the morning.
