It isn't easy being... white.

The vast majority of butterflies that feed on the flowers around my house are Sulfurs, named that because of their yellow coloration typical of the element Sulfur. This one had very tattered wings, which is usually indicative of older butterflies. However, I suspect that because this one is quite a bit more whitish, making it stand out, it has attracted the attention of predators more than normal colored ones.
