An Identity Problem ?

Plutselig oppdaget jeg en gjest som ikke pleier å besøke vår hage! Men – man har da bøker for denslags? Dette fikser jeg, trodde jeg! Men – jeg ble veldig usikker, for selv om størrelse og tegninger tilsa at dette skulle være en rapssommerfugl, så ville liksom ikke fargene helt stemme. Men så kan den jo selvsagt ha lånt litt reflekser fra blomsten den sitter på? Rapssommerfuglen skal forøvrig være helt vanlig over mesteparten av Norge, bare ikke i vår hage!
Suddenly I discovered a guest that I had never seen visiting our garden before?
But – one has books for those kind of occasions. No problem – I thought!
After a while I became rather unsure of myself. Even if the size seemed correct and the decor was there, it didn’t quite fit the description of a Pieris Napi? But then again it could have been somewhat colored by reflections from the flower  where it was sitting? It’s supposed to be very common throughout Norway, only NOT in our garden!

    Hi, Simon –
    And thanks for that information. That was the picture next to this one, but even here I didn’t quite match it to the real thing! 🙂 In my book the spots in the wings seemed a bit more ‘greyish’ where as in RL it looked a bit brownish? But then there are natural variations and the printing quality a.s.o.
    But I’m not an expert allthough I’ve shot thousands of oictures over the years! 🙂 (Thank you!)
