A Why? Butterfly. Seen in April on the slope of Mt. Hermon, Israel. You’re likely to give this Levantine Marbled White the two second look that most white butterflies complain of.
Look again There’s something different here. Examine those hindwings. See them?
Those two “eyes?” Our white butterflies don’t boast “eyes.” If it’s not a white butterfly, like our Cabbage white . . . what group of butterflies does it belong to?
Levantine Marbleds are Satyrs. Hmm.
Are there any white U.S.A. Satyr butterflies?
