A Season Far Away

Ragwort or Stinking Willie - shot in New Bunswick.  Any research I do leads back to Europe where this is native. It is found here on the island though there were some trying to eradicate in the 60's before I moved to the island.

 

I know there is a butterfly here too but have no idea as to what kind. Something common.

 

 I think I have played this here before:

The flutterby doesn't seem fazed by Malodorous Bill, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I think it may draw it.

Mary MacADNski: Alive in August and September.

Ragwort is not a name often uttered in our horse owning house, it being their mortal enemy
Mary MacADNski: We are horse country here and I will be on the lookout for this pes, ripping and tearing as I go.

One of the few "team building" events that I could not avoid involved clearing ragwort from a nearby hillside; it is not good for the cattle. The butterfly seems to have no such worries, though.
Mary MacADNski: Very good for you. I have helped rip out a late summer plant, purple loose strife and will do the same for ragwort.
This stuff is bad for horses I think Mary.
Mary MacADNski: I have heard this and will help eradicate it.

Wing markings look too pale for a large white, so I would guess a small white. Less common but still pretty plentiful.
Mary MacADNski: It is something common here. like something that eats cole crops or something.
The plant is certainly familiar but the lovely little butterfly isn't.
Mary MacADNski: I should look it up I suppose. Sigh!

I think our railway system had a lot do to with its widespread dispersal here.
Mary MacADNski: Supposedly this was brought to North America in ballast water.
Old Blackie is spot on I reckon that's a small white
Mary MacADNski: Do they lay eggs on cabbage plants and the whole family?
A really lovely shot!
Mary MacADNski: They are members of the sunflower family.
