104/365 Wood White butterfly Leptidea sinapis

After being involved in a research project for two years studying these little gems, I have to say that these Wood White butterflies have to be one of my favourite insects.  Very similar to the Green-veined White (in my post yesterday)  but the top wing is a lot more rounded  in the Wood White compared to the quite angled edge to the other ‘white’ butterflies.
