Recently my search for the eggs laid by orange tip butterflies on my fen has become a brief obsession. Finding something smaller than a fly’s eye is nowhere near as impressive – or immodest – as it may sound. Once you have the search image pre-loaded in your head it’s just a case of lifting the flowerheads one at a time until you locate the telltale grooved flask glued to the stalk.
Since orange tips use just two plant species, I search either the garlic mustard or, in this wet site, the pale pink blooms of lady’s smock. What makes the task easiest of all is that the eggs, while only 1mm-2mm long, are fluorescent orange. Presumably they are so bright, not to facilitate my game but to alert predators that here is something unpleasant to eat.
