Family Pieridae

Most members of Family Pieridae are white or yellow in color, as the family's common name implies.

Members of this family are generally characterized by the following: 1) medium size; 2) the tips of the legs, called the claws, are forked; 3) the forelegs of males and females are full-sized and fully functional; 4) the wings of many species reflect and absorb ultraviolet light in specific patterns, which helps the butterflies identify potential mates of the same species; and 5) many exhibit sexual dimorphism, meaning that butterflies of the same species look differently, depending on their sex. Several species are seasonally variable, with individuals emerging early in the season looking differently than those emerging later.

Eggs are generally round and elongated, like a cylinder, and ribbed. Caterpillars are generally green and without hairs or spines. The caterpillars of most Whites feed on various species of mustards (Family Brassicaceae), while the caterpillars of most Sulphurs feed on legumes (Family Leguminosae). Pupae typically have both a cremaster and a silk girdle, and often are pointed at the head. Generally no cocoon is formed.

Very good black BG!

cześć. Świetna fotka. Cudowna kompozycja, idealne naświetlenie. Wspaniale wyszło również tło. Dobra ostrość. Super !!!!!!!

Great shot of the Pieridae! I don't know how you micro photographers do it. I tried to capture some shots of butterflies this last weekend but failed miserably! :) Oh well, back to landscapes for me. You don't have to sneak up on a mountain because it isn't going anywhere! :) TFS!

Hello Malgosia,
A lovely creation with superb colours and details!
Well composed image, dynamics added by the diagonal configuration...
Excellent DOF with pleasant sharpness in butterfly & flowers!

Perfecta composición, basada en un impecable DOF y nitidez.

Buen trabajo.
