11.07.14 - Black Veined White

This is another shot from my photo walk across the fields behind my home on Wednesday, I didn't get anything new yesterday I'm afraid. There are several white butterflies in the UK, people tend to refer to them as "cabbage whites" and think they are all the same, but there is actually no such thing as a cabbage white. A bit like when people talk about "seagulls" when there is no such thing, just different species of "gull". I think this is a black veined white, but I'm not 100% sure. Generally there are more details on the underside of white butterflies, but I like them anyway and they are less skittish than many other species and easier to photograph :)
