Orange tip butterfly - Anthocharis cardamines (m)

Orange tip butterfly - Anthocharis cardamines seen here feeding on a Cuckoo flower (Lady Smock) at the side of the River Wye, Herefordshire.

 

This busy little butterfly actually decided to take a 2 minute break from the 'Spring madness' of searching for his lady love. Orange tips had been flying past us with gusto all morning in the search for true love! So this was a chance for a photograph and it was lovely to watch this little one feeding for a short while.
