|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This year, something strange has happened; I hardly saw any winged insects in the spring garden of my school. Earlier, I used to have a busy time in March/April, shooting all sorts of critters in the garden. |
I realized this while looking through my archives of 2013 when I had shot a variety of insects during the spring of that year. Today I am posting this picture of a Cabbage White from that season.
There are two types of Cabbage white butterflies -- the large and the small. They look alike except for their size. I guess this is a Small Cabbage White.
Thanks for looking.

Hi Ram,the diagonal light is a winner,a great 3D effect to see the veins of the white and yellow wings,magnificent composition very sharp too and useful note with this old pic from your archive. Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano
Hello Mr. Thakur,
I would say, the treasure was lying hidden in your archive. The light has rendered a truly magical effect highlighting the details & the veins of the Cabbage. I saw this particular species, infact lots of them in the Dachigam forest area in Srinagar, J&K.
Thanks for sharing this Gem!
Ciao Ram, great macro of lovely butterfly on beautiful flower, fine details, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

What caught my eye immediately in this photo was the special lighting. Every vein in its wings can be clearly seen in remarkable detail and true color. I see cabbage butterflies every day in the fields behind the house, this is one of the finest images I have seen in quite some time. Great job!!
