[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in the garden at Home this Small White Butterfly (Artogeia rapae)was sipping moisture from between the gravel on to of a pot with lavander growing in it. I suspect it was also warming it's self on the gravel as the sun was striking in hard and warming it so it could get upto operating temperature in a cool morning.

Interesante captura Robert... gran detalles en las alas con perfecto DOF que permite un foco muy adecuado.
El contraste contra la maceta de barro produce un realce de la mariposa.
Bonito disparo.
Saludos cordiales... Ricardo

Interesting capture Robert ... great details in the wings with perfect DOF that allows a very appropriate focus.
The contrast against the clay flowerpot produces a enhancement of the butterfly.
Nice shot.
Cordial greetings... Ricardo

Robert .. I would like you to you to look at the below URL:

You questioned my interest of posting that red lilly here in TN, saying this place is not for garden flowers..

Now let us see, what you have posted here!!!

This is what you call a picture eligible to be posted at TN??

Stick to your preaching Robert...
