[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As we were walking through a narrow valley in the streambed, all the while dodging fossilized wood and quartz, we came across a few of these, what I believe are Cabbage Butterflies. most of them were landing on Yellow flowers resembling daisies or miniature sunflowers.

Hello Steven,
this looks like a male of Pontia protodice.
Unfortunately, the butterfly is not shown very sharp and presented from an unfavourable point of view
so that the wing markings are not very clear.
Best wishes, Peter
