West Virginia White

The West Virginia White (Pieris virginiensis) is a woodland butterfly, which is found in the mountain regions. This butterfly can be found in forest clearings during April and May. the preferred host plants are rockcresses and toothworts. I photographed one ovipositing on a garlic mustard at Mingo, in Randolph County.
