Caper White (Anaphaeis aurota)

Unlike the other butterflies on the list, what makes the Caper White so beautiful is not a splash of color but rather the lack thereof. This butterfly sports crisp white wings bordered with bold black patterns, and, depending on the location, a splash of yellow.

"This species migrates to Israel from Africa nearly every summer and it may be seen flying throughout Israel until early winter," Dr. Racheli Schwartz-Tzachor, head of Butterfly and Plant Conservation at Ramat Hanadiv, wrote on Boeliem.

These special butterflies look different according to the weather – they have an outfit for the wet season and another for the dry.
