Does it have an orange or White body? There's a type of butterfly that used to be very common, all white...

white body

It's probably a variant of the cabbage/white butteryfly, which is often mistaken for a moth owing to it being all White.

Dominic said...

oh do cabbage whites have leave like camouflage?

Pete Hindle said...

They often have various markings - depending on sex, I think. It's rare that they are all white.

Oh nice and of course I meant leaf..
