First time I've got a shot of an Orange-tip Butterfly from the side. (R5 + RF 100-400mm - great set up fro butterflies!)

Very good shot Alan! You got pretty much the right colors (well, the background is "A" too). They are common there and still beautiful! Now try to get the female - not "orange tips" and not as colorful but for the collection! I have no idea where in Italy are you (if still there!) but look for the Eastern Orange Tip too!

Latticed Heath Moth, R5+RF100-500mm. Isn't it marvellous that you can be taking a bird in flight one minute and the next be capturing an insect 1.6m away at near macro the next with the same lens!

Once again some white butterfly that I cannot 100% determine. Could be a female orange tip.
If anyone can help me, please let me know.
