Can you see where is the leaf and where is the butterfly? Not much time to think about the focus here. :-( Too fast for me! lol!

Hello Gabriel,

The details are great! And what a camouflage!!! The colours and the background are perfect!!! Do you know the name of that pieridae?



Truly amazing shot, Gabriel. The butterfly and the flower are well-integrated despite their diversely different colours.

Hi Gabriel

A great shot that is well composed, with good clarity and depth of colour. Detail is spot on. A big tick for this shot! :-)

Very good photo of this Pieridae Gabriel!
Very beautiful on colours!
Very good on details!
Beautiful BG!
The specie is a Gonepteryx rhamni (Linnaeus, 1758).
Known as Brimstone in english.

It is a very interesting composition, looks like a reverse world, with the red flora and the green fauna :)
I love the BG.
Thanks for sharing, Gabriel.
Regards, Felipe.

El contraste con el inusual color del insecto cubren las espectativas por encima de algun detalle de foco espectacular toma!!!
