I think this is a Cabbage White but I'm not positive. I've been flipping through my book to no avail. So we'll just call her a white butterfly until I find a definite identification. :)

This is truly amongst the best shot I've come across, Angelina.The technical aspects are excellent, but what's best is the composition, the timing and the lovely colours!
very well done!

Hello Angy,
Very impressive to see a Cabbage White on a white flower!
good sharpness, nice colour and details
many thanks for the sharing

Well you are the one who ID'ed my first cabbage white, so my guess is you're right and of course this one is better...but this year you have set forth a challenge for me now!:-) Very nice Angel!

Hello Angelina,
Very nice capture of this Cabbage White on the wildflower. Wonderful composition, POV and BG. Sharpness is excellent as is the exposure. Very Nicely Done! TFS Thomas

Hi Angelina.
Hey I took 2 of these this weekend too. But they turned out bad, so I am glad yours went perfect.I kinda thought it was a moth for some reason.
Maybe the body defines moths from butterflies.
This is an easy shot to blow out with the whites, but you managed the details.
Have a great week

You've solved the double difficulty of exposing two white subjects correctly quite well Angelina, but I think the b.fly is a little over exposed, however your thema is perfect my friend, for that I thank you for sharing this fine scene with us.

HI Angelina
Lovely composition and wonderful colour. The white butterfly looks cool against the white flower...unusual and it is stunning. TFS

Hi Angelina,
Yes it looks to me as a cabbage white as we can see a dark spot behind the wing. Anyway Excellent composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Angy,

A beautiful picture of the white butterful on the daisy. Lovely shades of whites - the head is wonderful. The setting and composition are gorgeous.

Very good exposure of the whites retaining some nice details there. Great POV, DOF, color, and well seen from the BG also..
White butterfly works for me :)

Hallo Angelina
This is just a stunning capture with all technical aspects being perfect. What a soft white coloured butterfly. Very enjoyable to look at and pleasing to the eye. The same colours in your presentation are pretty and blend in well with one another. You have shared a very nice shot with great composition and framing. The details of the paws and the antenna are sharp. A superb quality macro with a beautiful colourful backdrop, and I especially like the unopened blossom blurred out in the background. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards.

Hi Angelina.
Nice white subject and very good exposure and colour tone reproduction. I like excellent wide DOF, details and sharpness of the entire butterfly and flower, pleasant well smoothed BG and impressive POV and composition. My compliments and TFS.

Hi Angelina,
it looks very much like a cabbage white but I do not see the black spot on the underside of it's wing so it may very well be the western white instead.The title given this photo is apt and makes the most sense.The great thing about butterfly photography is as lovely as they are,they pick such wonderful perches to land on and flowers alway compiment those wee creatures.The point of view and the exposure all very good for this capture of butterfly and flowerhead.Thanks for sharing this one with us. Bob

Hi Ange
A fine capture of whites...TFS
