Photographer's Note

Well this the 1st one out the camera since I got it back from Sony the lens having fallen apart in my hands ( ooops), my goodness have I missed it and a lot of potential pictures too.
This male orange tip butterfly (Anthocharis cardamines), (the female has white with black tiped wings).He`s only got 18 days to find a mate , there is only one batch of catapillars a year and they produce a sweet liquid that ants go potty for. they eat mainly smaler members of the cabage family such as wild turnip and mustard.
this one was in one of the tunnels and needed lifting out,so camera in hand persuaded it to sit on finger a couple of quick pics for the record and slowly carry outside and hope to get a better background but it saw the sky and flitted so no better picture.
