It concerns here the Anthocharis Cardamines. The name Cardamines refers butterfly to field cherry, the food plant of the caterpillar of the butterfly. This butterfly belongs to the family of the whites. To characterise The Orange wingtips are a beautiful spring teller with an attachment amplitude of 35-45 mm. the wing points of the front wings of the male are orange points and those of the females are black. The bases of the wings of both have sexes look like a lot on those of the whites: capricious grey green spotted. This spotting pattern provides a perfect camouflage to the butterfly during foraging. The females are not distinguished during the flight easily of the small cabbage white butterfly or goaded white. The males appear early in spring (beginning April). The butterfly has only one short generation up to in June. Till bride’s room is possible, the butterfly to observe in a big area in Europa. The habitat of the butterfly exists from a varied landscape surrounded with wet open parts, by trees and shrubs.

Yes this one was taken during the holydays in the Ardennen. With my camera, I was glad to find this fantastic exemplar. It is one of my favourite butterflies, they are realy fantastic. This composition is very nice I think, I hope you like the shot too.

As you described it in title Jaap - POV and DOF are great! Lovely composition with fragile flower and excellent patterns and textures on butterfy wings. Thanks for posting!

Great colours of spring! Very arty and sublime photo.
Thank you.

Great macro Jaap.
It's one of my favorite butterfly too. I'm longing for the spring now, I want to see butterflies and other insects again.
Very good POV, DOF, great composition and details. Very good and informative note like always.

Nice clear image Jaap, good colours. great background and good note.
Thanks for sharing.

Great photo!
Very interesting idea for this shot. Great POV and composition. The butterfly looks quite strange from this POV, but it no doubt makes photo very original. Great colours.
I like it very much.
Well done!

Goede morgen Jaap,
Hoe dan ook met dergelijke foto's heb ik U het hoogst gewardeerd, ik blijf er bij dit is uw specialiteit door weinigen wordt benaderd, maar misschien door vele met naijver bekeken. Als ik een gave meegekregen heb Jaap,dan is het dat ik nooit van iets of van iemand jaloers ben. Ik kijk steeds met grote bewondering naar uw werk.
Mogen er zo meer komen.
Groeten en verder veel succes hier!

Jaap, Interesting POV (not the usual), with exceptional detail & sharpness..Great color scheme..Great job!

Ha Jaap,

Mooi gedaan zeg. Die vleugel die onscherp wordt en de compositie met de witte bloemen en de fris groene achtergrond. Werkelijk een compliment waard.

I really like this PoV, Jaap.
I wish I would take so nice shot of butterflies as yours.
A great work: picture and note.

Naandsę Jaap
Lyk my jy kom ook nie te gereeld meer op TN nie, so ek skuld darem nie te veel nie. Pragtige vlinder hierdie, en soos genoem die POV is uitsonderlik - Knap en wel gedaan!

Hi, Jaap.
I have been looking at your wonderful shots I have missed all this days. They are all just beautiful and interesting. Congratulations and thanks for your work.
I chose this one because the funny title, the beautiful lights and textures and because it reminds me of your previous period in TN. Maybe you had already posted this one then?
Your friend, Felipe.
