APORIA CRATAEGI

Black-veined White
Baumweissling
Gazé

Still looking back to last summer!
We still have cold and cloudy weather, but it seems that for tomarrow we will have some change. So let's hope.
Aporia crataegi is a quite frequent visitor in the area where I take pictures. It is not always easy to catch it, but in the late afternoon it sits quite often for a longer time on a well chosen flower, very often on daisies, like on this picture. It's probaly for camouflage reasons.
I don't present this butterfly any more, I already have done it several times.

I would like to dedicate this picture to Bob Shannon to thank him for his natural pictures and interesting notes and also for the interest he has for other photographers and subjects of all kind.

Hi,
firstly, the original photograph is a wonderful one. I like the use of the situation and the settings.
Secondly, I prefered the vertical composition, cropping the rather disturbing background behind the butterfly. I also prefered to keep the flower in the frame, that gives this image a certain merry-ness!

Manipulations:
1. Crop
2. Gamma correction
3. Brightness correction
4. Adjust colors
5. Use NeatImage to remove noise
6. Sharpen a wee bit
7. Use NeatImage again

and here it is!
I hope you like it, although I did not take your permission before processing it, I am sorry :(

Beautiful photograph again! :)
