Ciao Luciano,
this is a beautiful and technically brilliant picture of edusa. Wing markings and surface appear very clear and are shown in natural colours.
The background is a bit noisy.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Luciano,
Excellent sharp-detailed photo. Splendid clear colours. Great composition.

Finalmente un po' del fascino di Silvio si è riversato su di te e questa signorina si è fatta immortalare. Gran dettaglio e bella texture.


ciao Luciano,
questo post,meglio del precedente,vale
la nota e i punti...ottimo pov e messa a

You continue to be as amazing at small insects, butterflies and the rest as you are at flowers Luciano...I am so happy for you...as you see in earth tones so well...and to me earth tones are similar to natural or pastel...although I do also appreciate the occasional saturated colours from such as Sumon and Pankaj who is definitely missing these days...we must give him some inspiration!

Bonjour Luciano,
Elle est quand même belle et élégante la Pontia edusa! Quelle finesse des teintes, aussi. L'arrière-plan est juste un peu bruyant. Mais pas grave.
Bon weekend

Bravo Luciano pour cette fantastique macro! La netteté est incroyable et la lumière est superbe. Merci!


Remarkable capture of this butterfly from Pieridae family, Luciano.
The colours and designs on the wings are beautiful to look at. The focus is spot on and the image has been composed very artfully.
TFS and regards,

Salut Luciano,
Superbe gros plan. Des détails très nets sur l'oeil du papillon.
Attention, on est encore copains quelques jours, mais bientôt la guerre. Allez les bleus !

Hi Luciano,
I was not present on TN for longer time but - as I promissed - I am back to your picture :)
Very nice photo of interesting species. I do not remember that I saw it in the wild. Nice profile and good colours :)
By the way, here you can see another species from this genus :)
All the best from Lodz my Friend!
