Moroccan Orange Tip On Poppy

By fishiee
Thought it about time I signed up to E2 again and got uploading now the nights are drawing in. Got a bit of a backlog of photos that need sorting out so hopefully this will encourage me to catch up!

Let's kick off with a female Moroccan Orange Tip photographed in Provence last spring.

The weather was grey and rainy for the first couple of days to the point where I was going out each day and knew pretty much off by heart what butterflies were settled on what flowers in the local area and it wasn't until the afternoon of day 3 that I actually saw one flying!
