I think it's from the Pieridae family...(most yellow ones are?) It's a great shot, whatever the family. I have been trying, unsuccessfully, to catch one of the monarchs floating around our neighborhood - but they don't stop even for a millisecond. Hummingbirds are easier to photograph! Well done!

Hi Marta,
Great capture!
Nice colors and composition.
Interesting POV.

Hello Marta,
Interesting capture of aBerger's Clouded Yellow (Colias alfacariensis) with a POV that clearly shows the head and antennae and to a lesser extent the wings. Excellent lighting and BG.
TFS and best wishes,

Hola Marta:

Lo teu son les papallones i no les aranyes. Son totes molt boniques totes les de la teva galeria, pot ser aquesta que publiques per ser poc vista sigui una de les que has aconseguit retratar-la molt be, amb definició, colors i punt de vista excel•lents. M'agrada molt la teva feina. Felicitats.

Un petó


Marta, molt bona llum i ub enfocament perfecte. Veg que poc a poc et perfecciones. He sentit que avui ha plogut una muntera per Manresa...al menys donarà gust sortir a tirar fotos; aquí a Lleida tot resec, un fàstic.

Hello Marta,
I don't think this buttefly is that easy to catch so you've done very well! Excellent sharp focus on the eye and fine natural colours. Looks as if it was windy, perhaps that's why the wings are not quite sharp.
TFS and regards, Ulla
