A white butterfly with orange tips to the wings resting on a green leaf

Orange Tip. Photo: Brian Arnold

This is the photo of the Orange Tip referred to in the earlier posting showing Brian’s photos of the Green Hairstreaks.  This was also taken on 04/04/2021 along the footpath from Ailwood Down to Corfe Castle below Challow Hill.

Editor’s Note: Whilst this is not the first record of an Orange Tip reported to Dorset Butterfly Conservation this year (that was on 27/03/2021) it is the first photo of one sent in for the Gallery and what a joy it is to see.
