More had been through the wars a bit, like this one.
This one is showing one of their feeding methods, walking along a leaf dragging its tongue along between its legs picking up the honeydew residue from the leaf's surface.
Some were also nectaring on bramble flowers.
This female looks to be in good condition but on the other side has a big piece of wing missing..
...like so, giving a rare glimpse of the upper-wing colour though. Her she can be seen egg-layeing on the stem of a blackthorn
The one on the left looks to have survived a bird attack with a nice beak-shaped hole through both of the wings!
Totally unrelated, a pair of Green-veined Whites photographed yesterday in The Ashclyst Forest. Where I saw my first Silver-washed Fritillaries of the year but no White Admirals or Purple Hairstreaks yet.
