Anche questa l'avevo già proposta, sbagliando nome come al solito, quella di oggi a mio parere è un po' meglio della precedente

Famiglia PIERIDI

Pieris edusa (Fabricius 1777) Edusa


Ali anteriori 21-24 mm


Farfalla di medie dimensioni, la cui livrea ricorda molto quella delle cavolaie. superiormente bianca con disegni neri all'angolo anteriore e netta macchia sul limitare della cellula. Le ali posteriori si presentano con macchie estese di colore verde scuro che si lasciano intravedere per trasparenza. La sua posizione sistematica è stata rivista solo recentemente, per cui in alcuni testi è possibile ritrovarla sotto il vecchio binomio di Pontia daplidice.


Dalle crisalidi svernanti emergono larve che prediligono Crucifere (genere Sinapis ed altri) e Resedacee. I bruchi si riconoscono per la colorazione di fondo bluastra sulla quale fanno spicco strisce longitudinali gialle. Gli adulti compaiono in marzo inoltrato e da questo periodo in poi si succedono due o più generazioni a seconda delle condizioni climatiche.

La specie è presente in tutta Italia, dalla pianura fino ai 1500 m. Nel comprensorio in esame è tra le farfalle più comuni ed accade di osservarla fino a novembre su campi, siepi e radure soleggiate.

Hello Silvio,
Fine against-the-light shot of Pontia edusa to get a great lighting effect. The details show well despite the lighting and the composition on the scabious flower is great.
Thanks for sharing this one,
Ivan

This uses a style I frequently do and also with a Nikon...very nice Silvio...lovely colours and constant reminders of warmer weather ahead...

ello Silvio,

Lovely composition to show off this splendid butterfly!
Good details of the wings (which look like gossamer) and the patterns.
A little over-exposure on the flower head but the rest more than compensates!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Silvio,

I don't know how you come up with a different butterfly nearly every day! This one is a beauty with lovely markings on both sides of the wings. Excellent colors and details and looks wonderful with the pretty flower.

Hello Silvio,
It's lovely to see the light through the wings of a butterfly! This is a great shot with fine details and colours and I like the brown background that sets it off.
Many thanks, Ulla

queste farfalle che trafficano con i fiori sono tutte bellissime, prima di frequentare questo sito e le tue foto e quelle di Luciano non mi ero mai reso conto di quanti insetti meravigliosi girano da sempre sotto i miei occhi, grazie e bravo
ciao
franco

Encore une merveille, on voit même la transparence de l'aile, très grande netteté et superbes couleurs.
Bravo
Marie
