|COMMON BRIMSTONE (GONEPTERYX RHAMNI)|
Gonepteryx rhamni (known as the common brimstone) is a butterfly of the Pieridae family. It lives in Europe, North Africa and Asia.
They never settle with their wings open and from the underside the sexes are more difficult to separate but the female is still paler. Their wing shape is unique among British butterflies (although there are similar, closely related species in southern and eastern Europe) and is designed to act as camouflage while they rest and during hibernation.
G. rhamni lives in Europe, North Africa, South America and Asia as far east as Mongolia. It is widely distributed across the southern half of the United Kingdom, and has been steadily increasing its range in the north of England.

Crisp and clear showing the fine textures and details of not only the butterfly, but the flower as well. Colors appear natural and the exposure is right on the button. I like the dark BG.
