Hello Friends.
Yesterday we went to peak point of Uludag (2543 m.). There is no any road to drive a car :) We had to go on food. During our trip I saw this interesting yellow butterfly.

I have often seen before, but I could'nt capture it. Unfortunately I don't have any idea about its name. It is just a butterfly for lots of people. But we, natur-lovers wonder all living forms.

Thanks for help :)

Update: This is a Clouded Yellow, (Colias croceus). Thanks to Lycaon for help with ID.

You can find more info about this butterfly here and here.

Fevzi bey šok tatlı ve enfes bir yakın plan šekimi. Elinize sağlık.

Hi Fevzi

Very nice macro , I like the colors



It is a Clouded Yellow (Colias croceus). It is a little oversaturated but otherwise a good shot.

Hello Fevzi,

Vivid and clear portrait of this clouded yellow. Contrast and black BG are nice.

Hi fevzi,
very decent shot of this yellow, though it looks oversaturated. the background is too dark, wish there were some light there too. lot many details on yellow.TFS.
