eggs in a cluster yellow as a duster

Big white butterflies flop around the garden, looking for places to lay their eggs.

The large white butterfly is the enemy of the vegetable gardener.

These beautiful yellow eggs are hidden on the underside of leaves..

and then hatch into microscopic munching monsters that will destroy young cabbage, broccoli or Brussels plants.

Although they are a wonder of nature, they have to be squidged.
