This lovely butterfly allowed me to get reasonably close in order to take a couple of shots. I’m fairly certain it’s a female Large White (or cabbage) butterfly but definitive identification is a little difficult as they are similar to Small Whites and Green-veined Whites.
There were a few fluttering around but this particular butterfly settled for a few seconds on this unusual cranesbill which I think is a Geranium Ibericum. I quite like the attractive veining in the flower. I also like the way different stages of flowering are in evidence (like poppies). Flowers, buds and seed pods can be seen – the pods resembling Crane bills hence the common name for Geraniums.
