I have seen this nice butterfly in mountain, and I had to take a dangerous position for me during the shot.


Name : Black-veined White - Scientific name : Aporia crataegi - Family : Pieridae.

Large butterfly. White wings with black colored veines. Upper wing 28-34 mm. Flying time : May to July. The Black-veined White are resident throughout almost all of the European continent. It shows migratory behaviour. They feed on a wide range of shrubs including orchard trees (of which they are sometimes regarded as a pest). As such they like open bushy places with plenty of flowers from which to feed.


No modification, only framed in 800x600 for TN.

very nice photo Christian,
I like the shot but I find it a little small in the frame, I think it may some more space for a better composition, farther super shot.

Très jolie prise. Les détails du papillons ressortent bien avec la douceur de la fleur et du fond. Très bon travail.

Very impressive work, Christian. Even more so when I read the note and you have not applied any sharpening to it. Great shot, love this.
