[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brimstone – Gonepteryx rhamni

This butterfly shows good disguising skill with its pointed shape of the wing, when it is sitting wings closed it looks exactly like a ivy leaf. The male Brimstone is bright lemon yellow while the female is pale lime green, and both have a single orange spot in the centre of each wing. The wingspan is approximately 60 mm.
Is one of the earliest butterflies on the wing, can be seen already in February or March after winter, and again from July to September in one generation per year.

Geographical distribution is Europe, North Africa, Asia on waysides, scrubby areas and woodland, among 0 and 2500 m altitude.

Great photo but I think you have sharpen it to much (or reduce the size) because there are some strange noises?
Best regards

Hola Parvalescu, bonita macro con buen DOF y agudeza, así como su iluminación y encuadre.
Los colores son adecuados, pero el fondo tiene un ruido evidente, pienso que por haber utilizado un ISO elevado, ya que no aparece ese dato en tus notas.
De todas maneras, es una interesante presentación.
Hice un Workshop utilizando Neat Image para reducir esto... espero sea de tu agrado.
Saludos... Ricardo

Hello Parvalescu, nice macro with good DOF and sharpness, as way as their illumination and framing.
The colors are adequate, but the bottom has a noise evident, I think that to have used a high ISO, already that that data doesn't appear in your notes.
Anyway, it is an interesting presentation.
I made a Workshop using Neat Image to reduce this... I hope you like it.
Greetings... Ricardo

The color combination of blossom and insect makes really the picture kind of unique.
Very beautiful work!
