There best photograph I managed was of a very familiar species, the Orange-tip Anthocharis cardamines. I love the green patterning on the underwing of this species

Other insects currently remain unidentifed, but worth posting just the same. There were several Empid dagger flies on the abundant Greater Stitchwort Stellaria holostea.
This sawfly is probably Rhogogaster viridis, though with little expereince of this group I would not want to rule out any of the other similar species.

Unusually for me, I found a tortrix moth that I have been unable to identify. I am still working on it, but may need to phone a friend eventually.
The pictures do not tell the full story of what a wonderful place Insh Marshes is. I will surely return someday in the not to distant future, perhaps a couple of weeks later in the year to catch up with that hoverfly.
