A Pierid.

Note the large white spot in the hind wing cell.

More Probably Eastern Bath white...Pontia edusa

The latter occurs in the east...the two cannot be told apart gross. Do not interbreed.

Hi Mike. I good shot of the Butterfly. Nice detail and colour.you have captured the markings well. well done TFS.

Hi Mike,
Oh, I like to see another Bath white uploaded here... I recently posted one but yours is definitely sharper and more detailed! Congrats! Marta

Nice capture Mike, good looking specimen.
IMHO a bit less space behind and some noise reduction background would help it.

Mike, Hmm nice shot and quite a hazy BG. The view of the butterfly is too good. Ganesh

Hello Mike,
a very unique kind of butterfly. Very pestel and tonal in colours. Great clarity and excellent position and composition. You waited at the right time.
