Beautiful shot, lovely contrast, good details and clarity. I like the mixture of the textures and tones. I would have personally trimmed a bit on the bottom to get rid of the OOF leave and give a bit more depth.
Thanks for sahring Peter, nice to meet you again :)

Dear Peter, it's not only the 'white' which is attractive: also the structure and the colour of the rotting leafs is interesting. Your picture shows the contrast of new fresh spring life and past life terminated in last autumn. Good composition, as presented from nature and recognized by you.

Wow! Peter it is perfect my friend! I like it a lot really. Great brown tones on the leaves are striking and they are so cool as a bg! Focusing and details on the butterfly are amazing. What a pity that right wing not opened enough, but that's not important so much. Great shot here and thank you!

This Green Veined White really stands out against the brown dried up leaf. Beautiful quality light in this shot. The colors are remarkable, and detail is very sharp. This looks excellent.

Excellent title's photo, Peter!
Even with a simple Pieridae you can take a beautiful photo!
Excellent on details and DOF!
Very good POV!
5* and TFS!
May I quote a line from your notes that really fascinated me: "That picture, taken early in the year, shows last year's vegetation confronted with one of the first butterflies of the new Spring". Wow, what a mouth full and so well said. It is a mixture of past, present and future incorporated within.
Your photo is quite excellent as well. I am impressed with your ability to capture these white or slightly coloured butterflies with such immaculate exposure. The colours are stunning and the details are amazing.
Very well done and TFS.
Hello Peter, nice shot. You did a great job on the exposure and the detials are very good. I like the brown leaf scenery too. Very well done.
