Hi Gert,impressive capture of this aporia,great backlight to show us in the best way the black veins of the white wings,impressive sharpness and nice composition too with the purple of geranium.Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

A very beautiful fresh capture of a White that seems to be quite huge, Gert.
Ideal POV that shows the black veins on white wings in their best possible aspect.
The flower it is perched on adds special appeal to the composition.
Thanks and regards.
