Orange Tip

Orange Tip (Anthocharis cardamines): This brightly-coloured butterfly (the males at least) is seen from April until early June, when females who lack the orange tips of the male look for plants like cuckoo-flower and garlic mustard on which to lay their eggs. The green larvae then feed on the developing seed pods before overwintering as pupae, ready to emerge the next year.
