Eurema is a widespread genus of grass yellow butterflies in the family Pieridae. Species range from Asia, Africa, Australia, and Oceania, to the New World. The type species is the North American Virginia grass yellow.

There are over 70 species in the genus, but more than 300 names have been applied to them. Some species, such as the common African grass yellow, E. hecuba, have over 80 synonyms. The genus itself has over 15 junior generic synonyms. This is the price of being a widespread taxon, as well as a zoogeographical problem.

Good pose on that leaf, Luc. I has quite a dramatic air to it! Colors seem very accurate and details excellent.

Hello Luciano,
Well captured this Grass Yellow 🦋 in its natural habitat. Well POV and nice details. Well isolation of the subject from such unfriendly location.
Thanks for sharing your work with us 😊

Ciao Luciano, altra grande bellezza esotica, qui fa caldo, ma non si vede ancora nulla in giro, ottima nitidezza e splendidi dettagli, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Ciao Luciano,
Well composed macro with good sharpness on the butterfly, on the wings, legs and on the antennae as well. Background's noise free and the lights are gorgeous, however, I feel the colors a touch undersaturated. Otherwise an effective image.
Kind regards from Ireland, László

Hello Luciano,
Beautiful photo in good sharpness and natural colours. Nice DOF.

Bonjour Luciano,

Le papillon est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue rapprochée permet de voir les détails du papillon Eurema elathea. La lumière donne de belles teintes aux couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.
