Flying Flowers

I’ve only seen a couple of butterflies so far this year: a Red Admiral and a Peacock. However, they flew past too quickly for me to get photos.

Luckily,  this Orange Tip butterfly was in a relaxed mood and spent long enough feasting on a flower for me to get to study it closely.

From its spotty eyes to its fluffy body and camo-pattern wings, there’s a lot to admire in the Orange Tip (aka Anthocharis Cardamines – thanks to @haggewoods for identifying it. I love Twitter as it’s a great way to learn from fellow nature-lovers).

I was particularly excited to encounter it as I’ve never seen one before – showing that nature always has new delights to reveal, no matter how often you go on nature walks.
