[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This one is especially for Pam. She takes photos of most cute birds on TN. I can't take shots of birds so I decided to dedicate butterfly only :-)

Brimstone [Gonepteryx rhamni]

European/world range
Widespread through Europe as far as 64ºN in Scandinavia, extending to Mongolia and North Africa. The European range is stable.

The larvae feed on leaves of Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica), which occurs mainly on calcareous soils, and Alder Buckthorn (Frangula alnus), which is found on moist acid soils and wetlands.

The Brimstone occurs in scrubby grassland, woodland (especially damp carr woodland), hedgerows, and open ground wherever foodplants are available in sunny positions. The butterfly ranges widely and can often be seen flying along roadside verges and tracks with hedgerows, well away from foodplants.

Hi Greg

Indeed for us S2 users it's much more difficult to take photos of bird, so this butterfly dedication is excellent!
A very beautiful shot with this brimstone with a bit torn wings but still looking lovely!
The POV is very good and the DOF is impecable, leaving that superb contrasting BG to be very nicely seen.
Great work, my frined!

Bravo and TFS

Otra bella compo a partir de la presentación de una mariposa y su flor.
Hermoso POV y encuadre vertical, con excelentes detalles, gran control de la luz y adecuado DOF, que permiten un correcto desenfoque sobre el fondo.
Un gran saludo... Ricardo

Another beautiful compo starting from the presentation of a butterfly and their flower.
Pretty POV and vertical framing, with excellent details, great control of the light and appropriate DOF that allow a correct out of focus on the bottom.
Best regards... Ricardo

Wonderful butterfly... she looks like with wedding clothes.
The vertical composition is very good and deep of field and sharpness is striking because getting it in macrophotography is very very difficult.
Congratulations and thank you for sharing it.

Hi Grzegorz,

What a totally fantastic shot, I'm sure Pam will be delighted by the dedication, wonderful POV and a great pose, the detail is perfectly sharp on both the Flower and the Butterfly, the colours are beautiful and contrast nicely with the excellent BG.

TFS Hilary

Great composition you have here Greg! Shaprpness is great both on the butterfly and flowers. Colours are great, so the framing and pov too! Beautiful dedication to Pam!

Hi Grzegorz,
I find this shot excellent in many aspect. Details, colors, sharpness, pov, bg. But I specially emphasize composition that is great. Appropriate, indeed, for Pam who has mastered this kind of shots.
Best regards, José M.

Lovely butterfly (he has been through quite a bit looking at the wings) and a nice flower shot as well. Sharp, great POV, colours and DOF.

Beautifully sharp and clear Greg! And very artfully displayed. The butterfly is aging, but you have framed it and the dandelion just perfectly my red friend,

Hello Greg,
Very nice flower-butterfly composition.POV,details,blurred BG,exposure and clear details are wonderful.Excellent work!

Hi Greg,
It is a beauty! The pale delicate colors in the wings look great. Nice sharp detail. The seperation from the nice OOF backround really is perfect here. Overall composition and framing are flawless.

Oh, Greg.... this is lovely. Thank you! Another of your wonderful butterlies. You have isolated it perfectly from the BG and the exposure is spot on. Lovely colours and as always top quality. A pleasure to view. Awesome work my friend! :-)

hello greg !
Poor butterfly with damaged wings ! But your picture of him is wonderful, as usual. The details, colors and composition are truly splendid, and the beautiful blurred BG makes the butterfly stand out so nicely. I'm sure Pam was very happy that this beautiful picture was dedicated to her. Very well done !
