Butterfly: Cabbage White (Pieris rapae)

I’m normally not a big fan of white and yellow butterflies. They are continually on the move and don’t settle long enough to be photographed and identified. But I couldn’t resist the opportunity to photograph this one that was working flowers in a small area. It worked back and forth between different flowers and, although I had to stalk it for a while, I got a couple of good pictures.
