Insects in the garden

This is one of the more interesting creatures(a Lepidoptera) which turned up in the garden. The pattern on the wings is quite unusual.
However with the recent warm days, the dreaded cabbage white butterflies have been active and are making an unwelcome return as are the green vegetable bugs. Better know as stink bugs they seem to hide in mulch and amongst weeds .It's a case of search and destroy now to avoid problems in the vegie patch later in the season.
