What rhymes with orange?

Nothing that any of us know of as of yet (new words seem to be created each year) but in this case, what’s orange is this lovely Grand Orange Tip butterfly.Β  I wonder why it’s a “grand” orange tip and is there just a regular orange tip out there somewhere?

And since I’ve mentioned wondering, I wonder where are these butterfly farms (I assume) that each year breed butterflies and then ship their little chrysalis off to different exhibits? And how do they come packed?

Seems today is hashtag #WonderingWednesday for me πŸ˜‰

Curiosity got to me and I did a quick research on this butterfly and I found out that this is a male orange tip and that they are found throughout Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland.

    If you ask our President, the word “orange” can be interchanged with “origin.” He said several times today that the “orange” of the prompting of the Mueller report needed to be investigated. LOL!

    Great butterfly pics. You work keeps getting better and better and your pics are always so magnificent.

    Lovely images but that’s not the Orange-tip butterfly we have in the UK https://blhphotoblog.wordpress.com/2018/05/02/orange-tip/ This is the Great Orange-tip from south Asia.
