Orange-tip (Anthocharis cardamines) - female

Always one of the signs of spring in full flow is the arrival of the orange-tips. They are quite flighty so always good to get a decent shot. This is a female, which doesn't have the distinctive orange on the upper side of it's fore-wing tips, but does share that beautiful patterning on the underside of the hind-wings.
