Orange tip butterfly, lady's smock, Doxey

Orange tip butterfly feeding on flowers if one of its favourite food plants, lady’s smock, on Doxey Marshes. I’d seen half a dozen other males that morning, and a single one of the more reclusive females. All the others dhad been moving too fast and unpredictably for me to focus on.
