The Pioneer White or African Caper White (Belenois aurota) is a small to medium-sized butterfly of the Family Pieridae, that is, the Yellows and Whites, which is found in South Asia and Africa. In Africa, it is also known as the Brown-veined White, and is well-known during summer and autumn when large numbers migrate north-east over the interior.

Hello George,
What a splendid photo to celebrate your 200th posting. Congratulations. The waterdrops are like pearls on the wings and head. Very beautiful colours, also in the blurred BG. Superb sharpness and details. Great POV and composition.

Ciao George, nice see a butterfly from you, and this one is fantastic, well decored by drops, beautiful blurry BG, splendid light, woonderful colors, excellent sharpness and fine details, very well done my friend, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hi George - Splendid macro. nice color and composition. TFS

This is really superb macro work George. Pin sharp detail and the little droplets adds a lot to the image. I like how the background orange colour compliments the shoulder colours on the butterfly.
Well exposed and good use of flash.

Impressive photo George. The POV and the composition are excellent. The colours and the BG are wonderful. The sharpness is perfect

A beautiful early morning capture with jewel-like dewdrops still much in evidence George, a beautiful effect my friend, the razor-sharp image is very much appreciated indeed!

Hi George.
You managed to produce a truly art picture. Flower, butterfly covered by numerous water drops of dew and BG create a splendid composition. POV, composition, colours, details are blameless. Well done.

Hello George,
another stunning details very well presented. so wonderful to see the heavily laden butterfly with water droplets.
so special and so different in presentation, not simply a butterfly.
This one is one extra value added with a lovely surprise.


NB- Last Sunday, Jusni and I went photo shooting in a nearby island. We got sunburn due to intense heat there.
Really enjoyedourselves though not many exciting shots produced!

Hello George
Woow, what a great macro shot, you can clearly see the dew water drops on the wings and on the whole body,and the colors are so natural and a great composition. Great shot great shot indeed friend George.
Job well done!
Regards Hedesan
