I put "like" for the photos. With the ID you are pretty out...This should be a large cabbage white. The pattern on the underneath of the hindwing is quite prominent.
I know that there are variations here but this intense pattern gets me a little bit puzzled as I haven't found any similar pic in the web.
The sequence shows really well how it uses the proboscis.
For those who don't know you can see quite well in the third pic that the proboscis typically has two parts that together form a tube.

Definitely not the Peppered moth. I have never been good in Geometridae and can't say what species it's. Have to ask a friend who is expert entomologist (and works moths and butterflies). I'm pretty sure I had this one in my collection back in the time but can't recall the name (and it was IDed by the same friend, otherwise, for butterflies and most of the moths I was able to do it by myself.Insects seem to like my window panes
This one was sitting there calmly in the evening until I brought torch and macro ring light.
But it didn't like a button up shot from the inside. Just when I had focus, it flew away.
Could be a peppered moth but I'm not sure here.

Hi! I'm new to this thread, and look forward to viewing the photos that others have posted here.
I'd like to post some photos I took during a recent visit to the Butterfly House, in the St. Louis area.
All are with R5 and RF 100-500mm f4.5-7.1 lens and DXO PL4.
I've never tried to identify butterflies, so I'll try to use "Seek" from my previous "birding" usage.
I'll mention what it tells me (for better or worse).
If anyone knows of a better iphone app to ID butterflies, feel free to let me know.
Thanks, Maximillian.Really nice series.
I love the "Heliconius" shot with the front perspective and the great view on the proboscis. Well done.
