Glad to see them finally making their way South. Have not had any yet. We had tons last year and planted more plants and got a rearing pen. The grandkids love em. Hoping to get some nice time lapse.

I did know the name of these at one time, but I'm terrible at remembering names.

Butterflies in Fitzroy Garden, Melbourne, Australia. Appears to be Pieris rapae, white cabbage butterfly.

These live in the USA as well. Rather than start a new thread, I found an existing one.

I've been shooting for over 60 years and this is the only one I've ever seen. I had a macro lens on the camera when I saw it, which would have been fine, except a tiger swallowtail was chasing it and I was chasing them. Never could get a real good shot of it, since the tiger would be on it every time it landed and off we all went again.
