An action photo from Clive taken yesterday, 25/04/2021 at Longham Common and sent in telling us:

I got this shot right at the end of the day – I’d given up trying to get a good shot of Orange Tips – they are always so skittish.  So I’d given up and walked home and I saw what I initially thought was a Small White, so I thought ok it looks like a good shot. When I zoomed in I noticed it was a female Orange Tip – and then the bee decided to get in on the act.  Small tussle ensued- the bee won and I went home.
