Another photo from Rogow botanical garden. I am still waiting for spring.
The Brimstone butterfly is one of the first signs of spring. After a winter when it is hidden under the leafs and in the tree hollows it is first butterfly on meadows.

Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) Family: Pieridae

The males are yellow and the females are greenish-white. Both sexes has one orange spot on every wing.

Distribution: Europe, North Africa, Asia in temperate climate zone to Japan

Flight period: One generation (in North and Central Europe from June to July)
(Southern Europe and North Africa from May to October). One of the longest living butterflies. Most of it’s life is a hibernation time.

Caterpillar host plants: alder buckthorn (Rhamnus frangula) and common buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica)
