Pacific Orangetip on Fiddleneck at San Dieguito River Park

What's that little white butterfly flitting about?

Well, in this case (assuming my identification is correct), it's a Pacific Orangetip. Butterflies have great names!

The plant is a fiddleneck of some kind. It was the flower my first San Diego County Lawrence's Goldfinches were feeding on in Poway, last March.
