Small White butterfly another view

It has been a very strange summer with cool weather and breezes affecting flowering of many plants (sweet peas did very badly in our garden this year). As a consequence pollinating insects were also affected – butterflies in particular were late in appearing. Tony Sargeant photographed these Small White butterflies (Pieris rapae) at the end of September. They are quite difficult to capture on film because they seem to dwell on briefly on the blossoms and seem more sensitive to any movement in the vicinity.
