While Frank and Jimmy did this, Dick took his butterfly net, and went after an orange-tip butterfly, which he saw flying past.
The brimstone or orange-tip would be good to observe in this respect, but it is hopelessly difficult.
When an orange-tip is at rest upon these blossoms it merges so completely into the background that it disappears from view.
Strictly speaking, this is not an orange-tip because the orange color is lacking in both sexes.
The male orange-tip (A. cardamines) is white with a dark grey or black tip, and a black discoidal spot.
It was the orange-tip, and the dormouse rejoiced, for the orange-tip meant spring.
