Brimstone - Gonepteryx rhamni

Here is a pic I took today of a female egg laying on one of the food plants, in this case Alder Buckthorn (Frangula alnus).

The species other foodplant is Common Buckthorn (Rhamnus cathartica).

I missed getting a shot with the egg fully visible as it was being laid but am quite happy with this.

Very good picture. Good, soft colours, good composition.


Hi Matt,
colours gentle and soft. Very pretty document with razor sharp details on both the butterfly and the future feeding plant. You are perfectly showing both partners with equal importance: the butterfly, and the plant its further generations depend on - in a perfectly chosen moment of laying eggs. Great!
Thanks, and best regards,

  • Great

A great job here Matt. Good saturation of colours, well composed, good POV, excellent exposure. Crisp, clear and sharp.

Hi Matt ,

Lovely macro shot of this cathartica, almost looks like a leaf shaped 1 , a bit more parallel on this would have give a great shot. Great sharpness and DOF ,
