Insex 2

The Cabbage White or Small White butterfly (Pieris rapae) is an almost universal visitor to gardens all over the world occupying places on every continent.

They are quite ‘flitty’ and hard to catch at rest, and so difficult to photograph, but these two seemed somewhat reticent about flying away and stayed where they were for quite some time (approaching 30 minutes!) despite being able to fly like this! (One is carried while the other flies and does all the flapping).

If scenes of sexual activity offends – look away now! 🙂

For those who ARE into butterfly porn – you can click on the pics to open in a new window and expand for detail.  Talk about your green-eyed monster… 😉
