@hjbenson thank you

@onewing as soon as it warms up a bit I am sure he will be fine, as long as no bird eats him first!

I like this one as it is in the natural environment. They are commonly called Brimestone butterflies, from the Genus Gonepteryx. They are in the same family as the Cabbage whites that are very common around vegetables

@imaginings ah! Thank you for your reply. I shall look it up. No vegetables in sight in the forest though. Either that or I just wasn't looking properly :-)

@huvesaker Most adult butterflies use many plants, they are often named by the favourite food source of the caterpillars.
