Green Veined Light
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A Green Veined White buttefly (Pieris napi) set against the setting sun yesterday evening.|
This is a common butterfly that is often mistaken for its cousin, the Small White. It is frequently encountered throughout the year, and is a visitor to parks and gardens, as well as less-urban areas such as meadows and woodland rides.
The main foodplants are Charlock (Sinapis arvensis), Cuckooflower (Cardamine pratensis), Garlic Mustard (Alliaria petiolata), Hedge Mustard (Sisymbrium officinale), Large Bitter-cress (Cardamine amara), Water-cress (Rorippa nasturtium-aquaticum), Wild Cabbage (Brassica oleracea) and Wild Radish (Raphanus raphanistrum). Crucifers (various) (Cruciferae family (various)) and Nasturtium (Tropaeolum majus) are also used.

Excellent macro Matt,
Very good lighting, sharp and detailed image, very nice colours.
perfect scene and compo,
a beautiful photo
Very good detail on the butterfly. I have seen many butterfly photos but none as good as this one. Good exposure and POV for this great macro!
Everything is perfect here. Fantastic blured background, beautful light green color, perfect sharpness. The only thing that you maybe could change is crop - maybe you could crop it a little bit more to make the subject more prominent
a classic image but beautifully taken top marks.
