  1. I also want a me too! I've never photographed these. Last weekend saw them but would not cooperate. Posted one month ago
    1. This was yesterday, when temperatures were a little lower, so these will sit on their host plant (Alliaria petiolata) in something close to a stasis and try to blend in with the small white flowers on the plant. Quite effectively actually - not at all easy to spot :o)
      Other than that I have no patience at all with butterflies not wanting to pose properly *rolleyes*

      1. I do try to have that patience and it still doesn't work. Posted one month ago
  2. These are so insanely beautiful! Posted one month ago
    1. Yes, they _are_ pretty, but also quite surprising how well they are camouflaged with this pattern on their host plant :o) Posted one month ago
