Orange Tip

by Dave McCormick

I seem to have no trouble getting decent pics of upperside of Orange Tip! This is Irish subspecies Hibernica. I only have trouble getting underside.

Taken at Mountstewart last weekend.


I was actually watching a pair of GV White and wanted a shot of them mating, but they fell under the bramble leaf they were on, then under some nettles and got unable to do anything and female flew off.


Male GV White.

Sorry for Brightness, but all shots were taken with bright sun behind me and my camera cannot handle bright light situations.
Cheers all,
