[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Orange Tip (Anthocharis cardamines) is a butterfly in the Pieridae family.
So named because of the males bright orange tips to his forwings.
Its distribution is all over Europe. In Israel it can be found in February and March in the Mediterranean regions. Only the male has striking orange patch on the forewing.

Nice shot of this Pieridae.
The specie is an Anthocharis cardamines (Linnaeus, 1758), known as "Orange tip" in english.
The POV isn't good, we can't see the all the butterfly!
The colours are a bit OE.

Very nice shot of Anthocharis cardamines.
Nice, warm colours, good sharpness. Thanks
