[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Was out doing a buttefly survey today as we were lucky to get a bit of sun today

Came across Mr & Mrs orange tip starting their family. I have never seen this before and thought it was fascinating. They completely closed their wings so that the camouflaged underside was only showing and from a certain angle they just looked like one butterfly.

Exciting time of year for this kind of thing - at last spring has reached Scotland

PP - Cropped, sharpened and adjusted levels. There is OE on parts of the wings but...hey...I aint used to taking photos in the sun! I will practice!

Awesome capture of these two butterflies. Besides the OE on their wings, you got them beautifully. Love the detail on their eyes.
