Red Tip, Colotis antevippe gavisa. Sexes differ and also displays season variation in appearance. Seen year-round, depending on rain-fall; from Little Karoo along the east, including all of “Transvaal”. Worn specimens are often seen. They like to follow a set course and are usually seen on flowers.

Great photos! The red tip is actually a smoky orange tip (Colotis euippe omphale)

I can see where the mistake re the Tip came in... that specimen was in remarkably worn state, making the call verrrry difficult. Looking at your call I must agree the Tip is a smoky orange.
