Green-veined White- a favourite and very wide-spread butterfly, flying in our garden, grasslands, woodland rides (this morning this one in the wonderful bluebell Woolley Woods,) and parks.  May is the peak time to see this butterfly– the veins are really a combination of black and yellow scales. The female, here, has wing-spots and this one has probably mated, as its abdomen is pointed up, showing males it is not receptive. Conditions : sunny intervals. Temperature: Max 17- Min 10c.
