Green-veined White


Pieris napi – Now you had the previous ‘Orange-tip’ post, and there were no orange tips … and now you are probably wondering why we got a ‘Green-veined White’ post without any green veins? Well, the green veins are on the underside of the wings, just about seen in the second image. This was taken in the local field. It was a good day for butterfly hunting. Double-click images for a closer look-see.
