[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A Bath White (Pontia daplidice NL: Resedawitje) in Chon Kemin national parc.

The Bath White (Pontia daplidice) is a small butterfly of the family Pieridae, the Yellows and Whites, which occurs in the Palearctic region. It is common in central and southern Europe, migrating northwards every summer, often reaching southern Scandinavia and sometimes southern England.

In South Asia, the Bath White ranges from Baluchistan, Peshawar, Chitral, Kashmir and along the Himalayas right across the Central Himalayas up to Darjeeling.
The butterfly appears to be extending its range westwards along the Himalayas.
