The Orange-tip is a common, small butterfly that flies in the spring, between April and July. It is found in a wide variety of habitats, including hedgerows, woodland rides and meadows, as well as farmland, gardens and parks. The foodplants of the caterpillars are Garlic Mustard, Cuckooflower and Hedge Mustard.

The male Orange-tip is unmistakeable: a white butterfly, half of its forewing is a bold orange, and it has light grey wingtips. The female is also white, but has grey-black wingtips, similar to the white butterflies. Both sexes show a mottled, 'mossy grey' pattern on the underside of their hindwings when at rest.

This male Orange Tip was taking a few minutes rest on his favourite sprig of Hawthorn, from defending his patch. Orange Tip season seems to be almost over. A shame as I love to see them in spring, and this was a bumper year for them.

Orange tip - Anthocharis cardamines

 

Male

 

The Orange-tip is a true sign of spring, being one of the first species to emerge that has not overwintered as an adult. The male and female of this species are very different in appearance. The more-conspicuous male has orange tips to the forewings, that give this butterfly its name. These orange tips are absent in the female and the female is often mistaken for one of the other whites, especially the Green-veined White or Small White. This butterfly is found throughout England, Wales and Ireland, but is somewhat-local further north and especially in Scotland. In most regions this butterfly does not form discrete colonies and wanders in every direction as it flies along hedgerows and woodland margins looking for a mate, nectar sources or foodplants. More northerly colonies are more compact and also more restricted in their movements.

The Australian White Ibis (Threskiornis molucca) is a native Australian bird. Here is one at the Sydney Fish Markets. Conservation status - least concern.

This butterfly has white uppersides to its wings. It is only the males that have orange-tipped forewings; females have small black tips. In both sexes the undersides of the hindwings are mottled with moss-green. The orange tips warn predators that this butterfly is highly distasteful.

 

Orange-tips are common throughout lowland England and Wales,

This Limpkin sure has a lot going on in these beautiful feathers.

Janolus savinkini, common name purple-tipped janolus, is a colorful sea slug, an arminina (a suborder of Janolus) nudibranch, a marine gastropod mollusc in the family Proctonotidae. The body and caruncle of this species are yellow with a hue of light orange. The papillae and cerata are also this colour except for the tips, which are blue/purple, hence the common name. (Wikipedia) Anilao, South Luzon, Philippines

So named because of the male's bright orange tips to his forewings. The males are a common sight in spring, flying along hedgerows and damp meadows in search of the more reclusive female which lacks the orange and is often mistaken for one of the other 'White' butterflies. The undersides are mottled green and white and create a superb camouflage when settled on flowerheads such as Cow Parsley and Garlic Mustard Alliaria petiolata. The male is able to hide his orange tips by tucking the forewings behind the hindwings at rest. On close examination of the mottling, the green colour can be seen to be made up of a mixture of black and yellow scales. The butterfly is found across Europe, and eastwards into temperate Asia as far as Japan.

Orange-tip : Anthocharis cardamines

These branches are on the same tree that I uploaded yesterday. The tree is quite tall. Funnily enough, while most leaves had fallen off the branches, ones by tips of each branch still remained. The straight line in the background are eaves of a 3-story building's top roof.
