[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The checkered white (Pontia protodice), butterfly in the family Pieridae. The wingspan is 1.25-1.75 in. Habitats are open areas, including desert, plains, and disturbed areas. Though it may seem these species of butterfly inhabit a wide range of environments, they have been found to be absent from certain counties for many years at a time. Checkered whites have been seen nectaring on mustards, composites, and alfalfa.

Hello Dijana,
You have photographed this Checkered White very nicely and in wonderful detail. I hope to someday see this little beauty in it's natural habitat. I love the unique markings on it's wings while the white and gold colors contrast very well together.
I believe the only thing I would have done differently would be to not place the subject directly in the center of the frame, but this is just my personal preference.

Hi, Dijana
This is a very nice photograph of Pontia daplidice. P. protodice is a similar American species. A little more cropping and a less centralised presentation would have improved the image in my opinion.
Best wishes, Nigel.
