How to Identify an Orange-tip Butterfly
With white wings and bright orange tips to the upper sides of its wings, the male Orange-tip
butterfly is one of the easiest butterflies to identify.
They are often found near streams, rivers and damp places where the plants upon which its caterpillars feed grow.
They are on the wing from early to mid April until mid to late June each year.
