This migrant butterfly is quite similar to Pontia daplidice. Investigations of the genitals are the only way to distinguish between both types.
I have chosen P. edusa, because of the location of Lardiers, which is on the Eastern side of the Provence. Gianluca Ferretti in his books on Alpine butterflies locates P. edusa there.( Le farfalle delle Alpi,p.56)

Hello Anne,
I love the colorful markings in this particular butterfly's wings. The pattern reminds me of inlaid Gold. You have captured it perfectly showing exceptional detail and excellent DOF while keeping the subject crisp and focused and the BG blurred. Great work Anne!!

That's a beauty Anne. You've gotta love that earthy green. Wonderful focus and nicely framed. One nice butterfly. TFS Trevor

Ciao Anne. Perfect details and sharp. Good managment of light/colours.

Liebe Anne,
in entspanner Ruhepose hast du diesen sehr flüchtigen Falter ideal ins Bild gesetzt. Wunderbar die verhalten erdigen Töne der trockenen mediterranen Spätsommervegetation!
Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,
