Very common butterfly the Brimstone.
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.

What a sharp Brimstone!
All the details is very good, colors are fantastic!
Warm congratulation!

Hello Rimantas
the little Gonepteryx is perfectly in focusing with the little colorful daisies on a background much neutral that very puts in prominence the depth of the photo. Optimal contrast and clear details.

Maravilloso conjunto Rimantas. Luces y colores impresionantes.
