Another new one!


Yesterday, while relaxing in the sunshine out front, I noticed a white butterfly flitting among the Spring Beauty flowers. The flight pattern was different from other white butterflies I’ve seen, so took a closer look. Sure enough it was a new one: a Falcate Orangetip. The males can’t be mistaken for anything else. It’s the only white butterfly in our area with orange wing tips. It’s not a big butterfly, so it’s easy to miss. Peter suggested I drop a coin near the flower so there’s some kind of scale. I’m pretty sure he was kidding.
