Caption: Cabbage white butterfly caterpillars. Close-up of the larvae of the cabbage white butterfly (Pieris brassicae) on a leaf. These caterpillars feed on plants in the cabbage family (Brassicaceae). They feed in groups in plain view on the leaf surface and are protected from predators by containing distasteful chemicals. Two broods are born each year, the first in May and June, and the second in August. The species over-winters as a chrysalis.
