Wood White [Leptidea sinapis]

                                                    1st brood Wood Whites

Wood Whites always land with their wings closed. The males are easily identified by the white tips to their antenna. The males have dark grey spots in the upper corner of their forewings. The females are lighter in colour.

  1. Wonderful images Nick, I am in awe! Have you done any images of courting wood whites? I did a blog post a while back but I might revisit it and try to get some more and hopefully better images.
