The Pioneer White or African Caper White (Belenois aurota) is a small to medium-sized butterfly of the Family Pieridae, that is, the Yellows and Whites, which is found in South Asia and Africa. In Africa, it is also known as the Brown-veined White, and is well known during summer and autumn when large numbers migrate north-east over the interior.

This Butterfly is about 3/4in but it seems to have such a small body for its wing size. I spotted this in the garden I also spotted one that was Huge, around 4in but could not get any shots. Thank goodness people cant see me running like an idiot to take a pic, I have always wondered how strange we must all look when taking Photographs. I seem to be uploading so many Butterflies sorry. As the saying goes , Make hay while the sun shines. They wont be around much longer as it was white with frost this morning.

Good Morning to everyone I would like to say thank you for some special comments and for your votes of late really something Thank you.

A very special thank you To LuDa for her UA yesterday.

Kind Regards…John

Four superb images, John, and excellent presentations. It's good to see butterflies, especially from other parts of the world, so no need at all to be sorry for uploading them SmileSmile Carol
