After adding your additional spots and the comment from José, I agree with Aphrissa. I know Aphrissa from Peru and Ecuador, but kick it out due to the missing markings on the hindwing. I obviously was misled by the tricky persepctive. Good job, José!

Now I'm not sure but your right in one picture it does seem to have a white patch but as I was trying to get a food shot it looked completely yellow I'm going to check the other photos I didn't post

I'm familiar with this butterfly!Some of your photos shows a white patch on the upper side of the wing that Phoebis sennae doesn't have.http://bugguide.net/images/raw/VLXZCLIZTL0ZBLXZQHGRQHSZVLYLWLLZTLSZTLGRDLPRKHQZELQZKH6RHHIZNLLZTZ5R1LSZQH8R0H.jpg

Pieridae, Phoebis sennae, male, without markings. In my eyes the only possibility.
