Show Me the Cabbage

This small white moth was fluttering around the long grass today.  I would have called it a “butterfly” out of laziness before but, after having seen so much larvae, I knew it was a moth.  I didn’t realize its white wings were also nicely decorate.  This is a Cabbage White Moth ( Pieris rapae ) which apparently was accidentally introduce to North America.
