While hunting for flowers between Gordes and Mt. Ventoux in Provence, I was lucky to capture this Black-Veined White (Aporia crataegi), one of the many butterfly species we saw there.

HI Ishi,
it's a wonderful butterfly and you captured it very nice and with good contrast on the pink flower. Also a good blurred BG.
Very well done, thanks

Hello Ishi,
This a macro with perfect POV, correct balanced ligth, impressive exposure level on white wings of butterfly. You've managed the cut and composition very well. Only a flaw is in the butterflie and flower textures, this seem some "soft", may be the result of noise reduction filters I think. TFS, regards, Jesús

Ciao Ishi, wonderful butterfly on a beautiful flower, fine details and splendid sharpness very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
