(Cabbage) White Butterfly

This (cabbage) white butterfly appears to be waiting for our valerian to flower. He/she has arrived a bit early. I can't tell whether it was a large or small white, but i love the tints of colour on its wings.
I'm sure there will be plenty more around as plants begin to flower and plotholders start planting out their veggies!
Make sure your netting mesh is fine enough - it's amazing what these can sneak through to lay their eggs!
