Pieris rapae – Cabbage White Butterfly

Probably the commonest butterfly on the planet, but not to be sniffed at for all that. Really the Cabbage White Butterfly (Pieris rapae) is a very attractive little creature if you can persuade it to sit still just long enough to have i’s portrait taken … this one was stalked for ten minutes before I could “digitally collect” its likeness.

Note the long proboscis inserted into the flower.
