...........A Cabbage White! (No such butterfly)

This is a Large White - on Rhubarb. Smile

Thanks to one of the Juniors treating us to Otter shots, I have been tempted to go to a butterfly and Otter centre today (Buckfastleigh)! Smile Hopefully I shall find one or two subjects to photograph!

Oh come on, Cabbage White is a common name for this and for the Small White. See

And

Not a bad photo of it though.

Hi Lynne, your first link has the correct title...............then tells us there are 2 butterflies which "'claim' (doesn't mean they're right!! Wink) the name" and your second link............Well!! The BBC should be ashamed of themselves!! Wink (lol)

I think it's one of those topics which we'll have to agree to disagree!! Grin

Not bad at all.
Looks like a friendly little creature - soon to be joined by about 2 billion fellow whites as they hatch.
Good picture, Karen.

A good capture, Karen. I think they're known as cabbage whites because they insist on laying their eggs on the underside of cabbage leaves, and the wretched caterpillars can have a wonderful feast when they emerge, without having to travel any distance Wink Carol

There are large cabbage whites and small cabbage whites and they both wreak havoc in the garden and at the allotment, thankfully this one is on a rhubarb leaf!Wink
