bonjour a tous.
en ce moment je n'ai pas le temps d'aller prendre des photos alors j'en publie une que j'ai prise il y a une quinzaine de jours.
le gonepteryx rhamni ou citron sur de la viperine.
Le "classique" papillon citron, si facilement observable dans les jardins, est un des papillons les plus étonnants par son cycle et sa durée de vie.
Messager du printemps, dès la sortie de l'hiver il est l'un des premiers à montrer le bout de ses ailes.

hello has all. in this moment I do not have time to go to take photographs then I publish one of them that I took there are about fifteen days.
The Brimstone Gonepteryx rhamni is a butterfly of the Pieridae family.


[edit] Appearance, behaviour and distribution
Found in Europe, Asia, and even north Africa, it is one of the longest lived butterflies, living up to thirteen months, although most of this time is spent in hibernation.

On the upper side the male is sulphur yellow and the female white with a greenish tinge but both have an orange spot in the center of each wing. They never settle with their wings open and from the underside the sexes are more difficult to separate but the female is still paler. Their wing shape is unique among British butterflies (although there are similar, closely related species in southern and eastern Europe) and is designed to act as camouflage while they rest and during hibernation. widely distributed across the southern half of the UK, it has been steadily increasing its range in the north of England but is limited by the distribution of its larval foodplants and is quite possibly close to its maximum possible distribution now unless their foodplants' range also increases. In Ireland it has a much more localised distribution. It is widespread across Europe, North Africa and eastwards to Mongolia Often the first butterfly to be seen in the spring, sometimes as early as January when hibernating adults are awoken on a sunny day, there is a popular myth that it is this butterfly which gave us the word BUTTERFLY, a corruption of butter-coloured fly.

Bonsoir Laurent,
Magnifique ton Citron sur la vipérine.! Du plus bel effet les couleurs de cette image. Etonnant de voir les antennes du papillon de la même couleur que les étamines(?) de la fleur. Superbe, quoi!
Bonne soirée
Anne

Lovely close capture showing the Brimstone surrounded by beautiful blue flowers. Excellent sharpness and good natural colours.
Very fine composition possibly a bit too tightly cropped.

Merci Laurent pour ce beau papillon citron. Les détails sont fascinantes. Les couleurs sont très belles, j'aime les tones complémentaires du fleur bleu et du papillon citron. L'oeil est placé très effectivement selon le moyen d'or. Une composition très équilibrée et plaisante. Aussi merci pour toutes les informations.
Très bien faites!

Hi Laurent,
Amazing details. I cannot imagine how it could be better. Such great texture on the wings. The colors are deep and very saturated. I am not familiar with the flower, but I am wondering if it may be a bit over-saturated? The crop is a little close for my taste, but the details are stunning.
Best Wishes,
Ken

Détails étonnants. Je ne peux pas imaginer comment il pourrait être meilleur. Une telle grande texture sur les ailes. Les couleurs profondément et très sont saturées. Je ne suis pas familier avec la fleur, est-ce que mais je me demande si ce peut être un peu sursaturé ? La récolte est une petite fin pour mon goût, mais les détails assomment. Les Meilleurs Voeux, Ken

Salut Laurent
Il est difficile de prendre des papillons en ce moment de l'année. Ici la lumière et la couleur sont biens. J'aime le point de vue et la pose sur cette fleur,
Merci et au revoir...JP

Belle photo de ce magnifique papillon,grande netteté, superbes couleurs douces,les détails nombreux et bien clairs, extra comme d' habitude d' ailleur, regarder vos photos est un véritable régal pour les yeux et repose.Amitier Thomas
je reviens

Bonjour Laurent !
Cette photo est superbe ! Le papillon en soi est déjà très beau, il ressemble un peu à une feuille. Les détails sont excellents, tout comme les couleurs (j'adore ce bleu intense), la composition et le POV. Le fond flou fait bien resortir l'insecte. Félicitations !
Valerie.

Hi Laurent,

What a BEAUTY
Sharpness, details, POV, DOF and BG are SUPERB

TFS Thijs

excellent comme toutes, rien a dire sinon parfait, pour moi je dois trier dans le peu que j' ai prises
car en vacances avec mon chéri, je n' ai guère eu l' appareil et finalement il est plus doué que moi, enfin bref, je commence a être débordé dans ma tête avec ces bagues allongues et tout le matériel.
pas grave !!
allez salut vite dodo
