A fresh brood of green-veined whites flitted about a bank of flowers of garlic mustard and green alkanet. Some were nectaring, proboscis drinking nectar. A green-veined white alighted in a profusion of wings- a pair of butterflies mating. Bright sunlight created shadows that make this image sequence interesting: sometimes shadows show sharper than the pale butterfly. Shadow-play offers two butterflies with six antennae, a flurry of shadow legs.
