[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Colias croceus is a small butterfly of the Pieridae family, that is, the Yellows and Whites. In India and nearby regions it is known as the Dark Clouded Yellow or Common Clouded Yellow to distinguish it from the other species of clouded yellows occurring there; elsewhere it is often simply known as "the clouded yellow".

Merhaba Durzan,

A lovely capture with beautiful colors, pose & POV. Very nicely taken & presented.

Dostum yıpranmış bir azamet de olsa hala güzelliğinden kaybetmemiş. Kompozisyon çok hoş. Arka planın pastel renkleri de kareye bir boyalı tablo havası klatmış.
Eline ve emeğine sağlık.
Bi slaven germ...

Slav Dûrzan,
A nice capture of a Clouded yellow taken from an interesting POV that shows most of its features (always with closed wings) with fine sharpness as well as how widespread the antennae are when it feeds.
Nice composition with the thistle flower against a good BG.
Thanks and kind regards,
Bi slavên germ,

Ciao Durzan. Very good POV and nice compo with strong light and beautiful colours.
