Very common butterfly the Brimstone on a wild flower.
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.

Hello Rimantas,
a very elegant presentation of the butterfly in combination with the flower, both in
complementary colours and in good contrast to the background.
Best wishes, Peter

Preciosa toma Rimantas, com un excelente control de la luz y unos colores magníficos y muy fieles a la realidad. Acertado fomato.
