Checkered White--Pontia protodice

I saw many white flitting by. It was difficult to see the markings, but I was told that the default white is a Checkered White. This one landed long enough for a picture. This butterfly is found in most of the US, but is only a permanent resident in the southern US and Mexico. Caterpillars eat mustards.
