|BLACK-VEINED WHITE - MATING (APORIA CRATAEGI)|
Aporia crataegi, the Black-veined White, is a large butterfly of the Pieridae family.
It is found in orchards and bushes throughout most of Europe, North Africa, temperate Asia, Korea and Japan.
It usually feeds on plants in the genus Prunus. Flight time is between April and July, size is 56–68 millimetres (2.2–2.7 in), and is normally found an altitudes of 500–2,000 metres (1,600–6,600 ft). Caterpillars live communally on uncut branches of the foodplant at first, before dispersing in the later developmental stages to other parts of the tree.

Very beautiful in their mating flight, love the contrasting black veins on white lower wings. Perfect exposure and tac sharp focus. Veins on upper wings appear to be brownish . I really like the way you framed them a bit off center and a tad diagonally. The tiny pinkish blooms add a nice touch of color.
