The small white may have been a female Orange Tip. They are very much alike. :nod:

Had to look it up to make sure. The small white has a black spot on each wing, that is what I seen.

The fine weather gave me the chance to sit on the back patio and watch nature. There was a steady flow of Orange Tips fluttering through for the whole 45 minutes it took to drink my coffee and munch a magnum. I have spent worse afternoons :nod:

Good spot Willpar. I haven't seen a butterfly since the weather went cooler.
