Most of the butterflies I typically see are the cabbage white butterflies... this guy is a tad larger, and more of a yellow-green color. I spent about 7 minutes with him, what with the stalking, sitting, creeping, and shooting. I was finally able to sit about 4 feet away from him, slowly lean over with my camera and take a bunch of photos. I can't identify him, though (after searching for over half an hour on line) - can anyone here?
While you're at it, any suggestions for a good crop? Should I get in tight, or show his surroundings to give some context? This photo is the full frame, just resized for posting. Thanks!
