Happy new year 2010 for all of you dear friends!

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. This is a fine side view of this Large white. Taken with such sharp focusing and fine detail. Your use of the light has given natural bright colours. well taken TFS.

A Happy New Year to you and your family.

Hello Mariana,
A smart photo of a beautiful butterfly, in fact, a female cabbage white. The focus and sharpness are excellent and the dainty flowers beautiful. The mottled blurred, shimmering background, gives the shot a wondrous look, at once impressive. Thanks for sharing...wish and hubby a wonderful, happy new years...warmest regards/Abid
