Becker's White
Pontia beckerii

Becker's White butterfly and a robberfly
I had not seen a butterfly all day until I saw this Robberfly with a Becker's White, a butterfly I had never had the privilege
of seeing anywhere!  It didn't seem right that the first one I saw was one in a Robberfly's grip.  © Carol Davis, 7-11-2010

The Robberfly was a little suspicious of my intentions and quickly flew over to a nearby bush. I followed it over there
and took a couple more pictures.  I wonder if I'll ever see a Becker's White again.
  The photos were
taken at Promontory Point, Box Elder County, Utah.
