Anthocharis cardamines (Orange-Tips Mating)
Description:

These Orange tips were photographed in the morning mating. As they were mating, I managed to get extremely close to them without upset. I had a window of a few minutes to get the images before the male flew off. I then had the opportunity to get some images of the female as she was a bit "spent" shall we say.
