ciao Luciano
this is similar to Pieridae members here or in Italy. however some differences present that it belongs to different genus. So, it is new to me. you nicely capture it, with nice focus, exposure and composition. thanks for sharing amico

Hi Luciano,

A beautiful White in a lovely pose. I love the light shining through the wing. The markings are elegant and you show them in fine detail. Is that a rock behind the butterfly???

bonjour Luciano

excellente photographie en contre du papillon,
prise par un excellent POV et de la façon dont c'est cadré,

toute la fleur (et pas coupé) qui est à la gauche de l'image,

Ciao Luciano,
A fine capture of the Great Southern White (I agree with the ID:)!).
Excellent POV, sharpness, lighting and composition though the Bg is rather strange.
Thanks and have a good weekend,
Ivan

Hello Luciano,
A lovely capture of this white butterfly in beautiful light. Great sharpness too and colours. A pity about the strange background that looks man-made!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Ciao MF Luciano,

A fine macro capture of an Dominican white from side vantage point with nice details and sharpness. The composition and also DOF are excellent too.
TFS and have a nice day!
Cheers,

Bayram

Ciao Luciano,
un'altra bellissima macro di queste splendide esotiche, una Pieride con le punte delle antenne verdine, ottima nitidezza e perfetta gestione del mezzo controluce, la composizione sarebbe molto buona se non fosse per lo sfondo sfortunato, forse non era possibile, ma mi sarei abbassato per eliminarlo almeno in parte, sempre sperando in una soluzione migliore, perchè potrebbe essere: "peso el tacon chel buso!" (peggio il rattoppo che il buco).
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Luciano. This is a fine close up of this butterfly which you have taken a fine side view of, You have used the bright light so well. Which has given natural looking colours. well taken TFS.
Nick..

Interesante contraluz. Lástima del elemento artificial.

Bonjour Luciano,
Voilà encore une beauté de papillon que tu as pu voir lors de tes vacances. Ascia monuste doit être très beau à voir, lorsqu'il vole, il n'est pas petit d'après l'indication de ses dimensions!
Une image aux couleurs naturelles, mais je me demande quel est ce "papier" blanc qui se trouve par terre?
Je te souhaite une belle semaine et un Joyeux Noël aussi. J'irai à la montagne, dans la neige pour le Fêtes
Amitiés
Anne
