Colias croceus
Nome comune

Queste farfalle hanno come colore dominante il giallo, arricchito da sfumature aranciate, più tenue per la femmina, più intense per il maschio. Si osserva ancora, nel maschio, un bordo nero nella parte terminale delle ali anteriori che continua anche nelle posteriori. Nella femmina al posto di questo bordo nero vi è una serie di piccole macchie scure disposte in fila in maniera crescente dal basso verso l'alto.
In entrambi gli esemplari presentano un margine intero e convesso con due venature anali nelle ali posteriori.

This butterfly has a strong resemblance with the one we identify as Emigrant here in India, Silvio.
Your have captured this butterfly very beautifully. Superb details abd colours on the wings and a pleasant composition.
Sorry for my belated response to your great work.

Hi Silvio,
Beautiful butterfly with such lovely yellow colour. Very impressive sharpness and the lighting and exposure level are superb. Excellent POV to portray it and the subjects stand out well against the BG. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Bonjour Silvio,
Suis un peu en retard avec mes critiques, je reviens sur ce joli Colias sur la fleur jaune. Je me suis rendue compte que ces papillons ne sont pas simples à photographier. Tu en as fait un joli duo et une image très naturelle.
Merci et bonne journée
