No ID, but wow, beautiful picture!
I don't know much about Western pierids, but I just have to tell you how great this photo is. The butterfly's wings both merge with and stand out from the white petals, as if it's part of the flower - it's a really nice effect. They both stand out beautifully against the soft, muted background colors, and the depth of field is very effective. Seriously, I'd make this my desktop wallpaper, it's gorgeous!

 
Thanks
Abigail. I took a bunch of shots... this was one of my favorites.
