    Great pics. The Lemon Migrant looks quite variable. Confusing if there are other similar species around! I have seen the closely related African Migrant in Mauritius and Tenerife, but at least on both of those islands there is nothing else to mistake it for!

      They are so very variable! In Taiwan, there was only two other Catopsilia’s and unfortunately I never ran across them. But since this guy is so varried, I got my hopes up a few times that I might have! In the US, there are a whole load of similar ones, and so I never know what I’m actually chasing. I’ll have to google the African.
