Great Southern White butterflies have a distinct white with black zigzag on the upper edge of their forewing. They can be found along the Gulf, parts of the Southwest and Florida in the United States. Mustard are the host plant for the caterpillar. I saw these at the Arboretum of Flagstaff in the butterfly house.
Shortstem Lupine are low growing wildflowers that are found in dry southwest areas with sagebrush, joshua trees, pinyon-juniper trees, or coniferous woodlands. The flowers are small with blue-purple tone and the leaves are palmate. I found these in a mountain meadow area in northern Arizona.
