[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A fresh butterfly picture from today. I know it is the pieridae family, but which one?

According to my Portuguese amigo Paulo: "The specie is Pieris napi (Linnaeus, 1758), known as "Green-veined white" in English."

As you see they feel like beeing in paradise, making love on a red clover.

An other love couple blue in love

Much more butterflies in my personal collection!
