Pieris virginiensis

Submitted by: Trailmaker
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Totally clear afternoon but on the cool side. Flying low to the ground in woods. There were several other white butterflies which I think were Cabbage Whites in the same woods acting the same way but this butterfly would stop more often and not be very difficult to approach.
