Great White (No . . . not the shark)

Great Southern White (Ascia monuste) feeding on Spanish Needle (Bidens pilosa L.) - Black Point Wildlife Drive, Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge, Titusville, Florida

View On Black

From a distance I thought this was the "standard issue" White Cabbage Butterfly, but then noticed it was a bit larger and had much nicer spikey black trim on the top side of the forewing which you can only see a bit of in this folded wing shot. :{(

Though the texture of the veining looked pretty good from the underside.

Sour grapes?
