First Butterfly of the Season!

I shot these just a few minutes ago in my own back yard, using my lowly iPhone 11.

Often called a cabbage butterfly, I believe this is a male Pieries rapae.
It was accidentally introduced to Quebec, Canada, around 1860 and spread rapidly throughout North America. –Wikipedia, Howe, William H. (1975). The Butterflies of North America. Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday. ISBN 978-0-385-04926-9.
