  1. I love these but the caterpillars will literally riddle a head of cabbage, kale, broccoli, Brussell Sprouts, etc.

    1. Do you have any cabbage, kale, broccoli or Brussel Sprouts? I thought not :). Oh, maybe some of that ornatmental Kale. I know they are a problem for gardeners, but I never actually saw one in Texas. So when I finally saw one, I was so happy. And also, the Whites are the first things out each year, and the last ones still flying at the end of the year! They are dependable…they are always around when nothing else is. That makes them just really a special favorite to me.

  2. Good morning Sylvia,
    This butterfly from Nepal (nepalensis) is fantastic <3
    The first photo is breathtaking!
    Ciao
    Sid
