The Wood White, Leptidea sinapis on Birdfoot Deervetch (Lotus corniculatus). This small butterfly is now rather uncommon in Belgium , except under favorable and protected conditions, such as here in Sclaigneaux "réserve naturelle". The caterpillar feeds on various plants of the pea family (Lathyrus sp.)

Good shot Philippe!
The butterfly is very sharp, but you clean this picture and removed a lot of details from the flower and the butterfly...
And that isn't very good!


Hi Philippe

Lovely shot. The colours are delightful. Crisp, clear and sharp. Good exposure on the whites. Nicely composed. Well done. Thanks. :-)

Wow Philippe, what a super catch of the Wood White, and especially on the Lathyrus flower. It looks so sharp, but also so delicate too. You did a good job on the white too, well done.

Je ne me lasse pas d'admirer les papillons, ce sont de belles et fragiles créatures. Et ce cliché de qualité fait aussi plaisir à voir. Merci Philippe.

Hola Philippe, que bellisima composicion, que gran nitidez y claridad de detalles, me encanta la posicion de la mariposa, lo que quizas no me convenza demasiado es el encuadre, no se si has hecho algun recorte o es la foto original.
Excelente trabajo de todos modos. Un cordial saludo.
