Default The Small White Butterfly in Flight


Dipped out on the birds today but came upon the small white butterfly, Pieris rapae,
foraging on the same pink bottle brush as the Painted Lady butterfly, shot yesterday.
By far the most interesting view of the Pieridae is in flight, as when it alights on a flower
It closes its wings while sucking up nectar, so making itself difficult for predators to spot.








OMD M5 Mk ii, + 40-150mm + X1.4 tc, 1/5000", F6.3, ISO1600
