Marbled White Butterfly

This is a Marbled White butterfly I found on a Greater Knapweed at Prairie de la Fa at 1000 m altitude.

Poem:

A butterfly is flying,
Up, not low,
It settles on a flower,
Down below.
It's smells with its antennae
And it starts to grow.

The only British butterfly with these distinctive markings. It is a black butterfly with white markings.The marbled white's eggs hatch in late summer and the tiny, cream coloured caterpillars hibernate amongst vegetation until the following spring. When they emerge they feed on various meadow grasses.
