Pieris napi. Female
youre my neighbour to day.
This one good pov but a little to busy in the bg.
The butterfly are good of sharpness but a pity the grasses are sitting before the wings.
I know you need a little patience to make a good capture and i am some hours busy to take good picture.
Fine natural colours.

very well seen in splendid sharpness of this butterfly. The composition by the grasses is lovely and so graphical.
clarity is well documented and excellently presented with the head so special.
Well thought shot.
You have managed to capture this male pieris napi in difficult circumstances. The Bg is busy and even though you have taken a POV with a fairly clear view there are still blades of grass in the way.
However where in focus the details of the butterfly are sharply shown in good lighting and this in my view is worth the credit.
The composition is too central for the POV. As the butterfly faces to the right it is good to reduce space on the left and increase it in the direction it is facing so the at the image complies to the rule of thirds. Of course composition is a matter of taste and there are many ways of bending this rule with a fine result, but this may help you.
Thanks and kind regards.

You already made me participate in the difficult conditions to photograph butterflies in your area. Then I want to congratulate strongly for this macro! Bravo! ... you've find a space between the wind to make a good photo of this P. napi! The exposure level is very good, the POV is a bit complex but efficient, the environment show very well the difficulty for the shot. I think you can improve a little the composition, placing the butterfly near to the left third of the photographic plane. Either way, it is a great macro, made under adverse conditions but well accomplished! Congratulations again! TFS, regards, Jesús

Nice to meet you Amelia! So hard POV for this small one into the grass. Good details on butterfly's head and intrigant transparencies.
