At the vegetable stall in the Square

I was really delighted to see a big pile of cabbages, with the stall holder flailing around them, trying to hold at bay a group of Cabbage White* butterflies, flutteringly intent on mischief. :-D

* yes, I know that in species terms they are either Large White, or Small White, and 'cabbage white' is incorrect.  In behavioural terms for this particular group, however, I feel that 'cabbage white' was right on the money.
