It's really an asset to be able to see both male and female simultaneously and so notice the difference in shades of the two otherwise pretty similar colours of the two sexes of C. hyale. You have provided us with an eminent picture of this species! Since you've also listed the genus of Colias I may add that they are now included in the subfamily of Coliadinae; perhaps you intend to capture them one after the other according to this check-list? - Let us hope so! Thank you very much for your contribibution,
Great shot indeed. Even the difference between sexes can be better seen on the ups of the wings (most noticeable being the thikness of that dark band at the tip of wings), you can see it here on the uns not only in shades, but in number of spots (eyes, ocels): two vs. one. I'm not sure which one has the more vivid colours, the male or the female?
what a wonderful moment you had the chance to see. They are so pretty and you captured them with excellent sharpness and wonderful colours.
Thank you very much - pssst: I hope, you haven't disturbed them ;-) Bye bye

Always a beautiful Nature's moment!
This specie doesn't exist in Portugal.
Very good details and colours!
Great capture Harm. The dof/sharpness is very good with plenty of details in the wings and especially the eyes. The colours look very natural and I like the composition with the butterflies in low position.
