Orange tip

When the Cuckooflowers(Pinksterbloemen) are open...the Orange tips(Oranjetipjes) (Anthocharis cardamines)are near by.
One of the hostplants of the Orangetips is the cuckooflower.
The female Orangetips look like cabbagewhites (koolwitjes),
but when her wings are closed, the wings have a green-white pattern.
The wings of the males however have beautiful orange at the end.
