[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Gonepteryx rhamni (known as the common brimstone) is a butterfly of the family Pieridae.
It lives throughout the Palearctic zone, commonly found across Europe, Asia, and North Africa.

The common brimstone is highly mobile and utilizes various environments for different stages of its life cycle. The butterfly inhabits wetlands during mating and breeding season, as they provide ideal areas for oviposition due to an abundance of host plants like the alder buckthorn.
The common brimstone prefers laying eggs on younger host-plants with late bud-bursts that are isolated from other plants in the area and exposed to both open space and sun.
During the winter, adult brimstones travel to woodlands to hibernate, as they provide ideal overwintering sites with shelters such as evergreen foliage and holly.

My finger tries to bring the meter to a spot,
the wings may this create more charming colours.
The height of beauty, nice shot.

Hi Marius,common in my country too but always nice to see,especially if the pic is a masterwork like this,fantastic details in the best exposure and bright colors too! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hello Marius,
Beautiful picture of this Brimstone butterfly. Well background and exposure. Like background bokeh. Cropping could have been more attractive than although it's my personal opinion. I'll post a WS later if you don't mind to show how I would like to frame this beautiful butterfly.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice weekend,
