White cabbage Butterfly

Welcome to another edition of macro monday.. It is difficult to attract butteflies if you are growing plants in containers. But planting the right plants at right places is the key. It appears to be a trifle task to capture a butterfly but it is not. This is probably some white cabbage butterfly. Still trying to confirm the identification. Sipping nector from my murraya plant on terrace.

Sometimes it takes hours capturing a butterfly. And the viewers are oblivious of the effort it is spent on the shot. Sometimes continuous shots are taken if butterfly is moving fast. Shutter speed matters a lot in this case. This one is another common butterfly of lahore. Just before rain she took shelter in the leaves.

Lovely photos of a pretty butterfly, though the name causes me to think that its caterpillar eats cabbage. I'm just starting to learn to identify butterflies and am finding out just how hard it is to get good photos of them.

You have not updated your blog from quite some time now. I guess it is because of the fasting month. I hope you are enjoying gardening and wish that all of your prayers are heard in the holy month.
