Workshop Note
Colias palaeno, the female - same day, same location. The ladies seem to be less wary than the males. But even so, this lady was taken during approach from a larger distance, and after that it did not allow me to get any closer. Therefore this image has been substantially cropped - resulting in less resolution of details, but enough at least to see the difference in colour: scales of wings predominantely white instead of yellow.

SONY DSC-H5, 3072 x 2304 pixel, sRGB, 17mm zoom (equivalent 17mm at full size SLR), F/8, 1/200 sec., ISO-125, hand held, no flash. 01.07.2007, 14:56.

Hope you enjoy.
