This is our version of Groundhog Day: Imported cabbageworm butterfly day!
Found this guy in our living room, this morning, looking for a place to warm up.
According to Wild Maryland 101 blog spot:
“They are very common and cold tolerant, and are often the first butterflies to be seen in early spring. For this reason, many Marylanders consider this non-native butterfly a harbinger of spring.”
Pieris rapae, also known as small white butterflies, European cabbage white butterflies, small cabbage white butterflies, and piéride du chou like we say in French.
