Lemon Emigrant

We were out at the Hortpark this afternoon to
be interviewed. ( again ) The best shot of the day,
was this pristine lemon emigrant.

This large abundant pierid is often seen bobbing around
the canopies of trees near high-rise flats, and is well
adapted to the urban habitat. It is very skittish,
so it was hard for me to shoot it feeding on this
snakeweed. In flight, the emigrant looks like the
similar mottled emigrant. It also has a few forms.

Please comment.
