Great Orange Tip at the Artis Royal Zoo (also known as Natura Artis Magistra), Amsterdam (Holland)

The Great Orange Tip is a butterfly belonging to the Pieridae family, that is the yellows and whites butterflies,
found in the Indomalaya ecozone and Wallacea. Aptly named, the Great Orange Tip butterfly bears bright white wings
that are marked with an orange area along the upper edge of the forewings.

The Butterfly Pavilion is the largest of its kind in the Netherlands, covering a thousand square meters and housing thousands of butterflies.
Twice a day, butterflies that have just crawled out of their cocoons are released into the pavilion.
