Weekly photo Challenge – Grid

As a gardener it is always a challenge keeping Large White Butterflies away from cabbages and other brassicas. These butterflies along with other white butterflies often collectively called Cabbage Whites lay their eggs on cabbages and related plants. Once they hatch the caterpillars can do a lot of damage eating the leaves. Here, despite my grid netting, the butterfly still managed to get inside! I have seen them physically trying to force themselves through netting!

  1. I can’t believe that the butterfly got through. Such a clever picture although it is not what you want, of course. I suppose they can ‘smell’ the cabbage?
