Well, here we are at the end of December with the new year lurking somewhere around ready to pounce. There aren’t many bugs to be found this time of year other than the familiar faces of my basement dwelling friends: the house centipedes and the cellar spiders.
I was paging through my sketchbook and found a drawing I made earlier this year. It was in the summer and I was a little frustrated that I couldn’t get a photo of one of the most common insects that I see in the summertime. The insect is the Small Cabbage White Butterfly, and the reason i couldn’t get a picture is because they are fast little things that rarely stop and, to me, look like rumpled up napkins clumsily dancing in the air.
I’d share some interesting facts about them if there were any. They get their name because they commonly lay their eggs on members of the cabbage family.
