CABBAGE WHITE BUTTERFLY, GREEN, MICHIGAN, JULY 5, 2015
Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro
1/400 sec. f9
I was hoping to catch a bumblebee with my macro photography outfit set up next to a pot of purple flowers on the back deck when this specimen of Pieris rapae flitted within range. It's a pretty butterfly, but its larvae play hell with crops in the cabbage family.
