Appontiament with a butterfly

with 16 comments

No, the title of today’s post isn’t a typo. It’s my way of saying that the butterfly in this August 26th photograph belongs to the genus Pontia. Chris Kotzer of bugguide.net thought it might be Pontia occidentalis, known as the western white. No doubt this butterfly and others were drawn to the asters that managed to thrive even in the dry ground of the badlands in Alberta’s Midland Provincial Park.
