Naughty Caterpillar

My nasturtiums now have no leaves or flowers left at all due to a gang of these pesky caterpillars! I'd like to know what they are so I can at least comfort myself that the garden will instead be full of wonderful butterflies/moths!

Sorry about the rubbish photo, my phone isn't too good at close-ups!

I agree

Yes I agree looking at the photos of other Large White caterpillars that's definitely what it is! Thank you :)

no problem

And don't worry about your camera, i just forked out for a new smart phone and it wouldn't even be able to take one as good as yours! Enjoy your butterflies!

Yes it's generally a good camera, it just doesn't always know what to focus on! Thank you I will :)
