Pieris rapae - Bielinek rzepnik (Linnaeus, 1758)

Skrzydło przednie z czarną plamą wierzchołkową sięgającą w dół do drugiej żyłki medialnej. U samca na wierzchu skrzydła jedna czarna plamka, u samicy - dwie czarne plamki. Spód tylnego skrzydła żółty z czarnym przyprószeniem. Rozpiętość skrzydeł: 40 - 46 mm.
Osobniki pokolenia wiosennego są wyraźnie mniejsze od pokolenia letniego i mają mniej wyraźny rysunek na skrzydłach.
Przepoczwarzają się na roślinie żywicielskiej lub w jej pobliżu.
Gąsienice w odróżnieniu od gąsienic bielinka kapustnika chętniej wyżerają wnętrze roślin żywicielskich. Samica składa 150-200 jaj.

Bonjour Alina,
J'aime beaucoup l'équilibre de la composition. Les belles couleurs de l'inflorescence mettent le sujet en valeur. Le jeu d'ombres et lumières est subtil, même si il crée des zones un peu surexposées.

Hello Alina, nice to meet you...
I really love the composition, the details, the lights & the true colors of your fantastic exposure.
Best regards, Andrée

Alina, Well done and a superb composition. Nice wing details and a sharp picture. The shadow effect inside the wings making a good reflection here. Ganesh

Hi Alina,
A lovely capture of this beautiful large white butterfly. Superb composition and good details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Alina
If I had taken this image I would be very proud and happy.
But I am critiquing it as per your request!
The Composition is faultless with the glorious flowers with superb sharp details in the right hand of the frame.
I personally think that at f5.6 your depth of field ran a bit short on the subject leaving the detail on the head a touch unsharp in comparison..This could easily be due to a colour match on the head and background.
So in Essence I would certainly have given a smiley which are a little pointless.
But I would award a 10/10 personally!!.
My Best Regards

Hello Alina,

The butterfly looks very nice especialy on the beautifully colored flower. You have shown very well the whiteish wings of the insect. Both texture and colors are very nice shown. The sharply shown insect and the flower it is sitting on looks very well against the blurry background.

Thank you for sharing,

Ciao Alina, wonderful macro with fantastic Pieris, fine details and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Alina.
What a wonderful, full of lights and vivid colours shot. Pictured scene is amazing. I like fine butterfly on a so wonderful flower. You have reflected both of them perfectly. With excellent sharpness, details and exactness of colours. Dark smooth BG is great for this beautiful composition. My compliments and TFS.
