Small White Butterfly

After the rain of a couple of days ago (red rain too, leaving sand stains on all newly painted surfaces!) a flush of small whites are flitting about from plant to plant. Here seen on my scented geranium on the balcony. Pieris rapae common throughout Europe, here, could be confused with the southern small white but the former will feed on almost any plant supplying nectar.
