Almost looks like summer

Along the rocks bordering White Rock beach, the wild mustard plants, yellow and blue, are in full bloom. And the fall crop of Cabbage whites is happily flitting from flower to flower.

Cabbage white butterfly, Pieris rapae, female (two spots on upper wing)

These butterflies are cold-tolerant; most of the other butterflies have gone into hibernation already.

  1. Oh, how beautiful! I found you on my sissie's blog, Random Nature--she's a follower of yours. Wow--your work is exquisite.


If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
