[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a small butterfly which I spotted on a moss-grown stone by a tiny crook. Though these yellow butterflies can be seen often fluttering here and there by a path or track over grasses or low plants, they can seldom seen stop or stay somewhere for a while, except when they were sucking moisture in the mud.

This butterfly is scientifically named Eurema blanda, which belongs to the butterfly family Pieridae (Yellows and Whites). Adult E. blanda are distinct yellow, small butterflies, with black marginal marks on the wings and have well developed forelegs with forked claws. The females lay about hundred eggs in clusters on the underside of new leaves. During the five larval instars, the yellow, hairless caterpillars successively defoliate the host tree.

Species range from Asia, Africa, Australia, and Oceania, to the New World. This species distribute widely especially in South China including Fujian, Hunan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan, Taiwan and Hong Kong, and it is also found in Tibet.

Hello John,
This one we see from time to time on TN. I always thought that it was quite big.
I like your square framing here and the nice pose of the butterfly, like on a little mossy hill. Well seen!
Kind regards

Hi John

Love the way you have presented this yellow beauty in full contrast, ultra low POV and tight depth with all emphasis on its green eyes. Nicely done.


Ciao John, lovely composition with fantastic butterfly on beautiful blurry BG, excellent sharpness, fine details, splendid light and wonderul bright colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello John,
How lucky you are to catch such a beauty, from close distance. Amazing details, perfect WB and exceptional capture. The colors are outstanding. I like this image very much. It is a interesting composition. The yellow colors reminds me of CLOUDED YELLOW (COLIAS CROCEA) wide spread in Europe.
Thanks for sharing!

haalo John
super good sharpness and with great details
the colours and BG are beautiful
thanks greeting lou

Slightly different species from the Common Grass Yellow we find in India, John. However, most features are almost similar.
Good capture from lateral perspective. The light is really ideal in this image and the dark BG highlights the subject very well.
Thanks and regards.
