Shona sent us these photos of an Orange tip found on 17/04.19 and says:

I had been hoping to take my first ever photos of an Orange Tip this Spring, and on a walk up the footpath beside Badbury Rings this afternoon my wish was granted!

The undersides of this butterfly whether male or female is always such a surprise when seen for the first time. Beautiful!
