Hello again on the first sunday of Advent.
No sun outside, it is cold and so I decided to show a sunny shot today.
This is a Postillon Colias crocea, Clouded Yellow, Postillon oder Wander-Gelbling.
It's wingspan is 40 - 50 mm.
It is one of my favourite butterflies because of the wonderful colour.

I hope you also like this arrangement,
enjoy the day ...

Hello Sabine,
Just what we need: a bit of colour and the reminder that we have summer to look forward to! The Clouded Yellow I also one of my favourites but it is rare in Sweden.
Great capture, the Clouded Yellow contrasting well with the purple Aster flower in this delightful sharp presentation.
Thanks for sharing this one and for your kind words on my 300th!
Best wishes, Ivan

Big thank you for this sunny picture - excellent for our present, sad weather mood.

Butterfly is perfectly sharp and detailed, every vein is well visible, yellow colour works well with violet/orange flower. I like BG with repeated flowers. Great picture my friend!

Hi Sabine.
What a wonderful colour pattern, bright, clear and pleasant to eyes. I also impressed with great DOF, brilliant reproduction of the butterfly and flower (I should say the remote flowers are amazing too at light blurriness). We can see all attractive tiny details. Dark green BG is so impressive and supplements the main subject perfectly. Bravo. Excellent job once more from you.

Hello Sabine, Namasthe from India,

This is one of the most beautiful butterfly picture in TN. There are so many colors in the picture on both flower and on Butterfly. Lovely pov and excellent sharpness.

Hello Wishnu,
Excellent composition in perfectness!
superb pose with perfect sharpness, vivid colour and so much details in it!
the exposure and focus is spot on!
very well done and TFS

Excelente profundidad y un perfecto
primer plano con extrordinarios colores.
Enhorabuena Wishnu.

Liebe Sabine,
stahlende Farbigkeit beschert uns einen fröhlichen Advent! Lichteinfall in Vollendung auf spätsommerlichen Blüten, und der Postillion in all seiner pastellbunten Farbigkeit mit gut gesetztem Blitz aufs Bild gebannt. Ausgezeichnete Details, enorme Tiefenschärfe.
Mit Dank und besten Grüßen - und einem schönen Adventsonntagabend,
