[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It belongs to the Pieridae Coliadinae family. May be Colias hylae.
Both sexes have single black spots on the forewings, and dull orange spots on the hindwings. Underneath, there is no black border, but there is a silver spot, outlined in pink, on each hind wing.
You can see this when the butterfly is resting in sunrise with folded wings.

Hi Rimants,
a nice picture of a lovely butterfly.
The wings a bit bright, alot of the details are missing.
Well composed, good POV and lovely colours.
Well done.
