[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Very common butterfly the Brimstone in sunshine.
The Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) is a mid-sized butterfly. The male is yellow and the female is lime green. The caterpillars eat buckthorn leaves. Found in Europe, Asia, and even north Africa, it is one of the longest living butterflies, living up to nine months.

Hallo Rimantas
A great capture of a beautiful butterfly that strongly reminds me of a green leaf. Details like the veins on the wings, the brown spots on the edges of the wings and the almost golden eye is photographed with great clarity. The Brimstone might be a common butterfly in your area, but to me it is a beauty with lots of pretty details. Thanks for sharing this lovely butterfly. Best regards.
