Wood White - Favourite Photo of 2013

Postby Vince Massimo » Sun Feb 23, 2014 8:13 pm

Week 20 (final categories)

Here is the opportunity to post your favourite photo(s) of a particular species taken in 2013 (or the last time you saw one!).

This is the final part of a series of topics which have been growing over 20 weeks throughout the winter, aiming to cover all 59 species which are regularly found in the British Isles. Our overseas members are very welcome to fill in the obvious gaps relating to rare UK migrants.

Details of locations, dates, times and circumstances would be welcome and please feel free to contribute observations of behaviour, stories of personal encounters, anecdotes or other interesting points.

Next week (Sunday 2nd March) you will all have the opportunity of posting your favourite single image of the year. This will be in the Photography section of the forums.

I didn't get to see Wood Whites at their best this year as my trips to Botany Bay weren't timed correctly. In fact my last sightings of the first brood were on 4th July, when I would have expected something a lot bigger and a lot more purple.

The earlier visit on 27th May was however notable for egg-laying females. Here is one...

and the resulting egg.

I'm not sure of the plant it's laid on.

A Botany Bay Wood White from the 25th May. This one was decent enough to hang around for a short while and select a nice perch to sit on!!

I have to admit I got a bit lucky with this one, but you need luck once in a while!

It was taken in May 2013, in my local woods.

I didn't take many photos of Wood Whites in 2013. This is my favourite:

This one was taken on 18th May at Botany Bay. One of the few photos I was quite pleased with last year!

Only saw two UK Wood Whites in 2013, both at Haugh Wood, near Hereford on 25th May:
