Anaphaeis aurota (Pieridae).
What a nice female of this specie for laying so patience, letting me get closer and closer...
Its a migratory specie that comes to visit my country only whenever it feels like (sometimes every year and sometimes doesn't appear for years). its origin is African but when it migrate it can reach north Israel and even north.

Great shot of this Pieridae. The wings are not typical to European Pieridae but the eggs are very typical ;-D
