Orange-tip

I had started to think that Orange-tip Butterflies were not very friendly. Every time I saw one I’d follow but it would flit away without pausing so I could get a shot. Most frustrating. However on Saturday one finally decided to be nice! It seems they like Herb Robert flowers – this little guy was ignoring any other type of flower and just fluttering between Herb Robert flowers. It made for a nice shot when I caught up with him!
