[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Large White, also called Cabbage Butterfly or Cabbage White (Pieris brassicae), is a butterfly in the family Pieridae. This butterfly is called the Large Cabbage White in India.
The Large White is common throughout Europe, North Africa and Asia to the Himalayas often in agricultural areas, meadows and parkland. It is a strong flier and the British population is reinforced in most years by migrations from the continent. Scattered reports of the Large White from the northeastern United States (New York, Rhode Island and Maine) over the past century are of a dubious nature and indicate either accidental transport or intentional release. Such introductions threaten to establish this agricultural pest in North America.

Hi Mariana!

The Large White is always pleasant to look at, and you have put it well on stage. The nicely blurred background highlights the butterfly's plain beauty very well and the flower is superb.

Kind regards

Hi Mariana,

A very beautiful Large White posing so daintily on the pretty flowers. Fine colors and details of both sides of the wings, the face and body. A nice neutral background to show the butterfly off very well.
