White Butterflies

As the butterfly season is drawing to a close I thought I would include a number of 'White' species in this post. 

Large White Butterfly







Brimstone Butterfly
Yes they are yellow/green, but are classed as a white species 





Green-veined White Butterfly

Small White Butterfly

  1. Thank you Roy for sharing with us over the summer time all the beautiful butterfies and these one are also gorgeous. I love the shots of the 2 flying together.

  2. The butterflies must have been enjoying the spell of warm sunny weather that we've enjoyed recently - summer's last fling before the longer nights and colder weather arrive.

    Tu as réalisé de belles photos de papillons tout au long de la saison et là encore, elles sont très belles.

  7. That's an achievement to get a shot of those duelling flutterers!

  8. The picture of the female Small White butterfly is a lovely picture because of the dapple sunlight on it. I also like the Brimstone and Small White aerial compact pictures.

  9. Still quite a few white butterflies around at the moment aren't there, though the cooler and damper weather in the last couple of days might bring the 'flutter' season to a close. As ever beautiful pics Mr Norris, whilst the flying shots are simply outstanding :-)

    1. Thanks David. Yes I think now its just about it, perhaps you may see the odd Red Admiral or Comma.
      I did see a Red Admiral briefly in Dec last year.
