Small White Butterfly

I don’t usually have much luck photographing butterflies, but this one seemed quite enamored of the Lantana flowers and was still long enough for me to get a few shots. I believe it is a very common Small White, or Small Cabbage White.

  15. Beautiful capture. I love these little white butterflies. They are especially stunning again my catmint – I’ve not been successful yet in capturing.

    Beautiful! They are very difficult to photograph, but you did it! We get a lot of these butterflies also, and I think you are correct on the name – a type of sulphur butterfly.

    I don’t think I’ve seen this white here in the hot tropics, it is very beautiful. But we have plenty of the slow and low-flying small whites.
