Pieris rapae, the small white, is a small- to medium-sized butterfly species of the whites-and-yellows family Pieridae. It is also known as the small cabbage white and in New Zealand, simply as white butterfly.The names "cabbage butterfly" and "cabbage white" can also refer to the large white. The butterfly can be distinguished by the white color with small black dots on its wings. They are further distinguished by the smaller size and lack of the black band at the tip of their forewings.
It is widespread and is believed to have originated in Europe or Asia. It is also found in North Africa and has been accidentally introduced to North America, Bermuda, Australia and New Zealand. The caterpillar of this species is seen as a pest for commercial agriculture. Often referred to as the "imported cabbageworm" they are a serious pest to cabbage and other mustard family crops.

Hello Luciano,
Beautiful sharp detailed photo of this damaged butterfly.

Hello Luciano,
Uncommon butterfly species again.....Nice colors.

Hello Luciano,
Definitely, not such eye catching POV and presentation. But well documented the moment. Exposure looks good as well as details.WS pictures helps to understand the moment. But, personally, don't agree to post such pictures where it's Photography value isn't much.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,

Bonjour Luciano,

Les brindilles de bois cadrent bien l'insecte. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Piéride de la rave. La lumière fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.
