[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
this pale yellow female Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) is resting on a pretty blue Plumbago flower.
It was early in the morning and the butterfly was not very active- it wouldn't open the wings for a pic. Pity!

What a nice and interesting butterfly that you have well captured ! Composition with blue flowers is pretty ! Thanks for sharing Marialuisa.

Hi Marialuisa,
this is so wonderful, doesn't matter it didn't open, it's pretty this way together with the blue blossoms.
I also never had the chance to make a shot of a brimstone with open wings.
You made a beautiful photo, thanks for sharing

Very good photo of this Pieridae!
But I think its not a Gonepteryx rhamni, but a Gonepteryx cleopatra (Linnaeus, 1767) from the Pieridae Coliadinae family.
Look at the yellow color on the top wings. Its a caracteristic from the G. cleopatra. The G. rhamni has the underside of the wings all green.
