Hello on this cold and snowy day here in Germany.
Brrrrr, nobody likes to go outside today, so much wind and snow flying diagonal into your face.
So I looked in my archive for a summer-shot.
Here it is:

But I have to say SORRY - and HELP.
I don't know what I show you here today.
I think some kind of cabbage butterfly, but I realy don't know. I'm sure Heinz or somebody else can tell me. Thank you so much for the help and any critique, bye.

Hi Sabine!
Can't miss out any of your posts; they are so captivating. This one is gem of a picture. By keeping the plant too in sharp detail, you have succeeded in creating a symbiosis between the two.
Warm regards,

Hallo Sabine, willkommen in Italien!
Ein sehr gut geglückter Schnappschuss dieses zappeligen Wanderfalters. Hab grad mein schlaues Buch zur Hand: Sieht aus wie ein "Resedafalter. Pontia daplidice L." Schärfe, Farben und Bildaufbau perfekt. Die blassen Farbtöne geben sehr gut den trocken heißen, ausgebrannten Spätsommer in Italien wieder. Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen,

Excellent detail and very good control of the DOF. Beautiful colours and I like the background.


Hallo Sabine, alles wieder im grünen Bereich.
Tolles Foto vom Resedafalter. Er ist auch ein Wanderfalter. Ich habe ihn noch nie gesehen. Wie üblich ein sehr schönes, scharfes Makro. Der Hintergrund passt ebenfall sehr gut zum Foto. Danke Dir und einen lieben Gruß an Euch.

Very good photo!
It's a Pieridae.
I think the specie is a Pontia edusa (Fabricius, 1777).
Known as Bath White in english.
Perfect on details!
Excellent on colurs!
Very good POV, DOF and BG!

Hallo Sabine,
wieder ein ganz scharfer Falter den du hier ablieferst. Die Bildgerstaltung und das Motiv sind bezaubernd. Wunsste gar nicht dass es in De solche schoene Schmetterlinge gibt.
Gruesse Sky

great note with beautiful macro!
Lovely colours and great composition and details!

Hi Wishnu
Great Picture
Excellent composition and good POV and BG.

Hi Sabine,
I'm still very busy, so have no time for a longer visit to TN.
Very good capture, and as always good details, colours, sharpness and composition.
Thanks for posting, have a great week.

Hi Wishnu,
que foto!!! Está perfeita, a nitidez é ótima e composição excelente! Grandes cores!! Perfeita!!!!

Francisco Sales

Nice shot, looks like the sun may have been tough, have you considered seeting the camera's Exposure Value (EV) to a negative number to underexpose the shot and negate some of the sund effect?

Das ist schön und sehr gut gefangengenommen

Alles ist zu meinem Auge vollkommen.

Danke für das Teilen es Sabine!

Hi Sabine,
Very nice shot on this beautiful butterfly,
excellent composition with sharp details and great colours.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Wishnu!

Hi Sabine!

Charming is very good word to describe this butterfly. Patterns on its wings look like fragments of curtain. Very well composed, with good details and light. Summer mood which helps us to survive winter :-)

Excellent Sabine. Very good sharpness, exposure, POV, detail and composition. The OOF field of similar flowers in the BG adds nicely to this one. Beautiful B-fly and Very well done.

Hi Sabine,
it's a reminder of whats coming soon.
Some parts are a wee OE, but thats a minor nit.
Well composed, good POV, nice colours and good details.
Very well done.

Sabine, another great capture.

Excellent colors, pov and composition. I enjoy sharpness too.


Hi Sabine,
This is a beauty. The colors and detail in this are superb, Flawless composition and framing. Very nice!

Lovely shot Sabine!
Perfect framing and details, well done on lighting too. Love the BG and colours.
Very well done on this one!

Very good picture of this butterfly! I think it is pontia edusa(looks the same as pontia daplidice)But according to the New Butterfly guide of Tom Tolman and Richard Lewington the distribution of P.edusa is incl.Italy and that of p.daplidice is not incl.Italy but more westwards lying coutries in the EU like Spain and France!
