I came upon these two doing their best to assure that there will be more Cabbage White butterflies-Pieris rapae  next year. I guess eye contact isn’t that big a deal in the insect world.

Cabbage White- Pieris rapae on a garden geranium.  These are quite active and just when you think you are homed in on one it flies.  Fortunately this one was hungry.
