[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here we can see the mating of Pieris brassicae.
A very common butterfly all arround the world.
Known as Large White in english. In Portugal is known as "Borboleta das couves".
Their larvas feeds on brassicaceae, but also tropaeolaceae and capparaceae.
It's a plague for the agricultures because the larvas eat the cabbage leaves.

Ola Paulo,
Good POV,a relatively rare composition with contrasting colours (white to green).I liked these white guys:)The right under part of the picture could be more exposed.
Thank you for sharing.

Excellent macro shot with excellent colors,sharpness,focus,DOF and frame!

Hello Paulo,
It is such a priviledge for us to be able to observe such activity. A lovely scene to see. Such a nice capture and setting. TFS.
