Indian Cabbage White

Indian Cabbage White (Pieris canidia, 东方菜粉蝶).
The weather is cooling and it is a great time of year for butterflies. Small whites (pieris rapae) are by far the most common pieridae in Changsha, but every day I am seeing more and more of these Indian cabbage whites (though in fact they vary in shades of white and yellow) near the river.
