[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Polish]
A circumboreal species widespread across Europe and Asia, including the Indian subcontinent, Japan and the Maghreb and North America (Many authors consider the Mustard White of North America to be conspecific with napi[1]) or consider napi to be a superspecies. It is found in meadows, hedgerows and woodland glades but not as often in gardens and parks like its close relatives the Large and Small Whites, for which it is often mistaken. Like other "white" butterflies, the sexes differ. The female has two spots on each forewing, the male only one. The veins on wings of the female are usually more heavily marked. The underside hindwings are pale yellow with the veins highlighted by black scales giving a greenish tint, hence Green-veined White. Unlike these two butterflies it rarely chooses garden cabbages to lay its eggs on, preferring wild crucifers .

Hello Slawek,
This Green-veined White is crippled, but it is a fine capture of it: good sharpness and natural colours with contrasting BG.
Thanks and kind regards,

Czesc Slawek,
bardzo podoba mi sie kompozycja tego motyla z niebieskim kwiatem. Super zielony spokojny i cieply tylny plan!
Udanego weekendu,

Ciao Slawek. Good detaisl and sharp with right balance of white.


Witaj Slawek,
I don't fully agree with all the colleagues writing in the queue: sharpness could be improved, especially on the wings. Composition's too central, at least the empty space on both sides are too much to my taste. Good DoF and colors alone are unable to save the image totally.
Have a happy Easter, best regards, Wladek
