Beautiful Moth that we found sunning itself on the sidewalk. It let me take it's picture then flew away.

This is a Small White or Small Cabbage White butterfly not a moth. You have just to belief me, since you can't see the antennae which might help to separate moths from butterflies. Butterflies have usually clubbed antennae, whereas moths have feather-like or straight antennae.
