Elizabeth Debenham | Marbled White Butterfly Pair

Marbled White Butterfly Pair

Oh the joys of summer! Seen in the Chiltern grassland these lovely butterflies roost on a Spotted Orchid with Hedge Bedstraw decoration. The female is more beige and the male is darker. Their pattern reminds me of leaded light church windows. They are on the wing in June and July in Chiltern grassland.
