Large White - Pieris brassica

The Large White or Cabbage White is a well-known species widespread in most of Europe.

The female lays batches of 20 to 100 yellow eggs (see WORKSHOP) on plants in the cabbage family and can be a pest on food crops. They seem to have a preference for cultivated varieties of Brassica oleracea such as cabbage and brussels sprouts. The caterpillars are yellowish green with yellow lines and black spots and feed in groups in plain view on the leaf surface. They gain protection from predators by possessing distasteful chemicals. The species over-winters as a chrysalis. It has two broods in a year, the first is on the wing in May and June and the second in August. Extract from Wikipedia

Lovely picture of these Large Whites mating, neighbour Ulla.

Well done and TFS this summertime beauty.

Hello Ulla,
Very nice photo in beautiful soft light and colours. Good sharpness, details, POV and composition. Pleasing blurred BG.

Nice sharpness on the heads of these cabbage white's. you caught them right in the 'action'
I think they fall a bit away in the leafs, but the soft background helps a lot.

Hello Ulla,
very beautiful cabbages in exciting view. The softness of the wings are well documented in clarity and sharpness. The smooth blurry background enhances the view very well.
Well seen in good composition.


Nice photo with clear details. TFS.
