Anthocharis Cardamines - Orange Tip.

Mating pair of Orange Tips disturbed by another flying male trying to frustrate this moment!
Song: Jealouse Guy:
Performer Roxy music 1981 :

I was dreaming of the past
And my heart was beating fast
I began to lose control
I began to lose control

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I make you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you,
I'm just a jealous guy.

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore
I was shivering inside
I was shivering inside

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I make you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you,
I'm just a jealous guy.

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I make you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you,
I'm just a jealous guy.

I was trying to catch your eyes
Though that you was trying to hide
I was swallowing my pain
I was swallowing my pain

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I make you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you,
I'm just a jealous guy,
I'm just a jealous guy,
I'm just a jealous guy.

I feel lucky that I was there at that moment and succeeded to make such a picture; the male mating is spreading his wings to defend them against the attacking male.

Hi Harm
Nice shot good timing and beautiful song as a note.
One of my favourite.
Its not clear in your shot everything that you write and I thing another position will be much better.
I know how difficult it is but your note is very helpful seeing what you shot

Indeed a jealous guy!
Great capture Harm!
Peaty the "jealous one" didn't stay totaly on focus.
Very beautiful colours!
Excellent POV and BG!
TFS!

Hi Harm,
that's a rare - and funny - capture!
For an action shot taken from very small objects from a close distance, the problem of short depth of field has to be accepted. Deciding for a slower shutter speed to obtain better DOV may be an option for the next encounter with jealous butterflies. But for now, I is up to me to be the jealous photographer who never had the chance of capturing such a lovely scene.
Thank you, and best regards,
Peter

Nice picture.Too bad the butterfly with open wings that did not come out clearly.
