Pontia edusa, the eastern Bath white, is a butterfly in the family Pieridae.
Pontia edusa is a small to medium-sized migrant butterfly, with a wingspan reaching about 45 mm. The upperside of the wings is white, with black stains on the top of the forewing and hindwing. The hindwing undersides have greenish-grey spots. The butterfly is nearly identical to Pontia daplidice. Investigations of the genitals are the only way to distinguish between these two types.
The adults fly from March to October with two to four generations depending on the latitude. The eggs are laid singly and have an incubation period of seven days. The caterpillars are present from May. They are greyish-greenish, with black dots and broad yellow stripes, quite similar to the larva of the cabbage butterfly (Pieris brassicae). The larvae feed on Resedaceae species. Pontia edusa hibernates in the chrysalis stage.
t is found from the south east of Europe (southern France, Italy, Corsica, Sardinia) up to central Europe and the Middle East in Iran and Iraq. It is a migrant which can also be encountered in Belgium, Holland, northern Germany and Poland, in the Baltic states and in southern Sweden and Norway.This species can be found in any open grassy or flowery areas, in stony or rocky places and in roadsides, especially where the host plants grow, at an altitude of 0–2,300 metres (0–7,546 ft).

I just imagine that how much cool and calm one should be to catch this, nice shot.
Ciao Luciano, macro strepitosa con dettagli super, fantastici i colori, una volta era comune dalle mie parti, da un paio d'anni non la vedo più, gran bella, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
An interesting one Luciano with the unusual green features.
Fantastic details, lights, colours, also BG and 3D IMAGE well done again LUCIANO GOLLINI
This background better than your recent post. Less distractive, and helps to focus on butterfly only. Good details a search exposure. To me bit tight although 😉
Thanks and regards,
Le papillon est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Marbré vert oriental. La lumière rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.
