Ok - I added the common names!
I guess You're also right with P. Rapae - I changed that too ...

Servus! If the black triangular patch is extending below the black spot on the forewing than your ID is correct. I can't see this exactly from this shot, a little bit too bright light and damaged wing. Might also be Pieris rapae, Kleiner Kohlweissling. Please, do not forget to add a common name of your spotting, it not minds if German or English, but not just "butterfly", thanks!
