The male of this species is a conspicuous ‘soft’ yellow and easily distinguishable in flight from C.croceus. The females are off-white and easily overlooked in the presence of other more common white species. Care must also be taken not to confuse with the white form of females of C.croceus. It is generally accepted that C.hyale and another species Berger's Clouded Yellow (Colias alfacariensis) are indistinguishable in the adult form in the wild, only the very different caterpillars providing diagnostic separation.

Lovely macro capture of this adorable yellow butterfly, with nice control on sharpness and taken from a perfect POV. Wonderful use of the shallow DOF, was a great advantage here. The colors and the textures of teh butterfly are perfectly shown. The flower enhances the beauty of the picture immensly.

Hello Mariana,

This is an elegant capture!
Delicate pastel colours are nicely reproduced, good texture in the wings and the pattern comes out well...
DoF spot on isolates the insect nicely, making it stand out well!
