It concerns here the Anthocharis Cardamines. The name Cardamines refers butterfly to field cherry, the food plant of the caterpillar of the butterfly. This butterfly belongs to the family of the whites. To characterise The Orange wingtips are a beautiful spring teller with an attachment amplitude of 35-45 mm. the wing points of the front wings of the male are orange points and those of the females are black. The bases of the wings of both have sexes look like a lot on those of the whites: capricious grey green spotted. This spotting pattern provides a perfect camouflage to the butterfly during foraging. The females are not distinguished during the flight easily of the small cabbage white butterfly or goaded white. The males appear early in spring (beginning April). The butterfly has only one short generation up to in June. Till bride’s room is possible, the butterfly is in the east and south west of the Netherlands to observe. The habitat of the butterfly exists from a varied landscape surrounded with wet open parts, by trees and shrubs.

Yes another old photo from my passion. The spring is there, but here it is still to cold to see them alraidy, otherwise I was the first one to make a shot. This is from 10 cm distanche, and I hope you like the shot.

Goedemorgen Jaap,
Met dit type van foto's en macro's heb ik de grootste wardering voor u gekregen, ik hoop dat uw nieuwe camera de zelfde of ja misschien betere resultaten geeft, wat al heel moeilijk zal zijn want deze is perfect Jaap, het zijn gewoon juweeltjes deze vlinders, en steeds mooi gedocumenteerd. Wordt een van mijn favorieten.
