Falcate Orangetip Butterfly (Male)

Post by Ceropegia » Sun Mar 06, 2016 11:32 am

This is one of the first butterflies of the year to appear. In past years I have seen them as early as mid February. BTW, only the males have the orange tips.

Nice shot. It's just above 32 degrees here so it may be a bit before I see anything like it here.
