White on white

In the last four days I have come across two white butterfly individuals resting on leaves of very similar colour to themselves. If is it just chance or if they are trying to camouflage themselves against their chosen resting place I cannot say, but they made for a nice photographic opportunity.
    
Large white on Stachys lanata, Lamb's ears
Green-Veined white on Phlomis fruticosa, Jerusalem Sage

Awww, so lovely... Love those lab's ears, though mine never seem to flower.

Antje, apparently some varieties of lambs ears do not flower, some people prefer just the masses of leaves! Thank you for your comments.
