[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I've had difficult work for taken this butterfly because it have habit to perch deep in grass and other plant and is very lively. It was near edge of the forest so often the butterfly flew out there.
It isn't correct my ID of this species because it have very similar English name.
The correct name is The Black-veined Moth (Siona lineata) is a moth of the family Geometridae. It is found throughout Europe.The wingspan is 35-40 mm. The moth flies in one generation from the beginning of May to the end of June.
The caterpillar feed on various herbs, such as marjoram

This name isn't correct
Black Veined White (Aporia crataegi)

Hello Pawel,
This is a fine capture of a species that is not easy to photograph.
If it were Aporia crataegi it would be easier, but this is a species of Geometer moth that looks similar, it is Siona lineata.
The sharpness wher in focus is good and the contrast with the clean green BG excellent.
Thanks and best regards,

Hello Pawel,

Fine colors.
