Two white butterflies fighting with bonus mint moth
I have had a stupidly busy day but I can't tell you how pleased I was when I found this on my camera's memory card from yesterday. Here, a green-veined white butterfly attacks a large white butterfly whilst a mint moth (red and brown with yellow markings) looks on unperturbed. Never a dull moment in the herb patch!

I never knew butterflies were so busy shoving each other off the blossoms.

Oh yeah. They're properly competitive little blighters.

Very much so! It's not easy to have the right focal point under such circumstances.
