May 26th, 2012. The Cabbage White (Pieris rapae) butterfly is quite common. It occurs throughout Georgia from mid-March to early November. For all that, it’s not an easy butterfly to photograph. It tends to be on the move so we took the opportunity to photograph one that was feeding on wildflowers in the Scull Shoals Experimental Forest in Greene County, Georgia.
In the sun…
In the shade…
It was nice to have an opportunity to see this common but somewhat elusive butterfly up close.
