Winter Small White

Small White (Pieris rapae, 菜粉蝶).

We had three days of sunny days in the high 20s although we are now back to winter weather. The false spring brought out a few butterflies: mostly Asian commas, and where there were sufficient flowers, a few small whites such as this one. I also saw a solitary blue admiral flying high and far.
