[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Green-veined White (Pieris napi) is a butterfly of the Pieridae family.
Like other "white" butterflies, the sexes differ. The female has two spots on each forewing, the male only one. The veins on wings of the female are usually more heavily marked. The underside hindwings are pale yellow with the veins highlighted by black scales giving a greenish tint, hence Green-veined White. Unlike these two butterflies it rarely chooses garden cabbages to lay its eggs on, preferring wild crucifers.

Hello Szabo,
There's a lot to see here. Everything is in a good sharp focus with lovely details. Excellent POV and composition and beautiful natural colours.

Hello Szabo,
A photo technically well managed, and with an eloquence increased thanks to a pair of flies from the lower left. This butterfly is very well exposed.
Regards, TFS

What a fabulous image! The two at the bottom actively adds value! Well done Jozsef. A pleasure to view.

Beautiful Butterfly. The execution is wonderful, like this perspective...
