This butterfly is another example of how something common is still quite appealing. It might not have the brilliant display of other butterflies but it has a delicate beauty that makes it stand out. It’s widespread in our area and I’ve seen it as early as May and well into August. It’s a good insect to photograph because it tends to perch a little longer than others, giving plenty of opportunity to take your shots. They’re also a nice addition to any flower!

  1. You capture the beauty of nature so well! Loved this. And I know how difficult this might have been with butterflies. I’d had little luck, Basil a little more. 🙂

  5. Both of your photos really highlight the beauty of the cabbage white, Belinda. I find that interesting, because the first flower is rather pale, and the second photo is more vibrant with color — but both do a great job of showing off the butterfly.

  9. Beautiful shots of this white butterfly. Took me years to be able to capture butterflies – they are always on the go. Have many shots of butterflies now. They are such delicate little creatures. Thanks for sharing.
