A delicate cabbage white butterfly. by 


Cabbage Whites are about two inches wide when their wings are spread. Males and females can be told apart by their wing spots. Males only have one spot on each wing, while females have two. Cabbage Whites can be seen just about anywhere there are open spaces, including fields, gardens, roadsides, waste places, parks, and cities. It’s not hard to find these little guys fluttering around. It’s another thing altogether to actually photograph one. They are jumpy. I captured this female on the side of the road along my yard in Rockaway, NJ. I used a Nikon Coolpix L110 digital camera.

I’ve always appreciated nature, but I didn’t show interest in photography until digital started to come into it’s own. I had many cheap cameras over the years, but when I got the Nikon D3100 for my birthday last year, I really started to realize what photography was all about. I’ve had such a blast learning on the go over the past 10 months. I’ve gotten shots that I could have only dreamed of a year ago. I hope you all enjoy my photos, and by all means, BUY SOMETHING! =)

    Well do they like Cabbages?? They are really very pretty!!

  • Actually, they lay their eggs on cabbages. The caterpillars are considered to be major pests to cabbage crops. :)
