Mustard White Butterfly

This is a Mustard White butterfly. They have been flitting about the yard and woods edge for a week now. They only show up in the northern tier states. It was identified for me at by Cliff Bernzweig. The wonderful part of photographing birds and insects is that you never forget what they are once you learn. When clicked, these photos will open, full size, in a new window.

  1. We have a similar butterfly out here called the Cabbage White. It has a small black dot one each wing. Food plants are the mustard family and it's habitat is fields and gardens. They must be cousins. You got beautiful shots. MB

  2. nice shots - also of the bird

  3. That's the first time I've seen a Mustard White.

  4. Never seen one before but I will be reading up on it..

  5. Very cool.

    Pretty pix, and photographing does help remember them.

    My daughter wrote an article about these are related species, I'll have to find it and share it with you.

    I'm sorry if it seems like I fell off the end of the earth. I was just overwhelmed with a bunch of stuff all coming up at once.

  6. Very beautiful photo with fantastic details, excellent.

  7. Good close-up, the white butterfly is beautiful on the green background.
