Assumed it was a cabbage white BUT not so sure now, it was visiting the apartment gardens at Hillarys boat harbour
Cabbage White in Mount Hawthorne
Cabbage White (Pieris rapae)
11 July 2015: On Cooper Creek in the Avondale Park area we encountered a Cabbage White (Pieris rapae) perched on green foliage in the shade. This was the first time we've documented this butterfly at Avondale Park and Cooper Creek. According to the Butterflies and Moths of North America Web site, Cabbage White ranges from "central Canada south through the United States (except Florida Keys, southern Louisiana, and South Texas) to northwest Mexico." Hence this is a strictly North American butterfly. Because of its flight in North America Cabbage White is an authentic resident of the Western Hemisphere. Avondale Park and Cooper Creek are administered by the City of Denton, Texas.

Coolest-Moment-of-the-Day: watched a Cabbage White lazily waft over the meadow. Walked towards it to photograph ( cuz there just Aren't enough of Those on iNat...) and Bang! Green Darner catches it in the air - something I'd never witnessed. Then I started silently saying, " Please, oh please, oh please land on that tree and eat it! " And it did!
So Very Satisfying when Nature caters to My needs.
There were two of this species fluttering around over the tall grasses. Close to the pond that was below the hill of grass.
