While on the subject...

.. of butterflies & food plants I took this Orange tip (m) feeding on Cuckooflower.

It was only when double checking for my Flickr caption that I realised that the scientific name of the butterfly (Anthocharis cardamines) is named after the flower (Cardamine pratensis) - the caterpillar's foodplant.  However this one was eating rather than laying eggs!!!
