My first butterfly in flight!!!

The Small White (Pieris rapae) is a small- to medium-sized butterfly species of the Yellows-and-Whites family Pieridae. It is also known as the Small Cabbage White and in New Zealand, simply as White Butterfly.[1] The names "Cabbage Butterfly" and "Cabbage White" can also refer to the Large White.
It is widespread and populations are found across Europe, North Africa, Asia, and Great Britain. It has also been accidentally introduced to North America, Australia and New Zealand where it causes damage to cultivated cabbages and other mustard family crops. The caterpillar stage alone is responsible for crop damage because of which it is referred to as the Imported Cabbageworm.

Hello Siggi,
It's always a great moment when you see a good result of an experiment, congratulations. Excellent timing.
Beautiful light and colours. Great sharpness and DOF.

Witaj Siggi,
Niesamowita fotka, wspaniale zlapana ostrosc motylka w locie przy urokliwym rozmazaniu kwiatka. Motylek robi niesamowite wrazenie.

A perfect in-flight shot of Small White, Siegfried.
The exposure is flawless and you have frozen the subject with sharp details on the wings. What was the shutter speed, BTW?

Hello Siggi,
congrats to you first in-flight shot of a butterfly. it's real fine.
The butterfly is sharp not easy with in-flight shots of insects.
NIce natural colours too.
Well done.
