[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Black-veined White

This butterfly is a well-known guest here on TN. It has been shown every summer by different European photographers.
In my country this year, Aporia crataegi was rather rare and I have seen it just once ot twice, whereas in "normal" summers it is more frequent.
I also noticed that these white butterflies love to pose on white flowers, smart they are!
