It was fairly white; and the great southern white is common in the area. Thanks, JessicaHelmbold, for reaching so far back to ID this spotting.

Possible ID suggestions: if its fairly yellow which is hard to tell from the photo then I would suggest Large Orange Sulfur- Phoebis agarithe or if it was fairly white then the Great Southern White Butterfly- Ascia monuste.
