Anthocharis cardamines 1

The earliest I've seen Orange-tips. A white butterfly with orange tips to its wings. Wings have mottled undersides. Visiting violets in the warm March sunshine. This is one of this year's butterflies - some of the other species on the wing at the moment are last year's adults awoken from hibernation.
