Colias crocea

The Clouded Yellow is an abundant and widespread butterfly in North Africa and the Mediterranean region, from where it migrates north-wards each year.

The butterflies breed in a wide range of habitats including cultivated lucerne fields, clover-rich farm headlands, steep well-drained chalk and limestone grasslands, abandoned quarries, road and rail embankments - anywhere in fact where the foodplants grow in profusion in a warm dry habitat.

The butterfly is multi-brooded in warmer parts of it's range, but in Britain it normally produces only a single generation, emerging from July to mid August - the progeny of adults that migrated northward from the continent in May or June. In particularly warm summers there is often a partial 2nd brood that emerges in October. These late emerging adults and any resulting eggs or caterpillars normally perish in early winter, but at a tiny handful of sites on the south coast larvae occasionally overwinter successfully, producing a few adults in February or March.

Merhaba Özgür,
A fine capture of a Clouded Yellow butterfly taken in nice lighting while feeding on the yellow flower from a great POV with excellent sharpness and colours. I like the composition that shows the OOF habitat in the BG too.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello Ozgur,
Lovely photo of this butterfly in a very beautiful environment. Good POV, sharpness, well saturated colours and OOF BG.
Regards,
Peter

Hallo Ozgur
What a warm and inviting image is this. I like it very much, not just because of your beautiful topic or the sunny yellow colours, or the setting or the lovely flowers that serves both as a backdrop or frame, but mostly because of the pleasant and natural sunlight that is seen so beautifully in this wonderful 'picture'. It has such a joyful feeling that surrounds it, and has an artistic flair to it too. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Wayyyy... en nihayet! O kadar ısrar en sonunda çok güzel bir kare ile dönmüşsün Özgür. Aldığın yorumladan herkesin beğendiği de belli. Benim küçük de olsa bir eleştirim olacak ama! Umarım darılmazsın. Arka fonun 1/3'lük üst zemininde sanki biraz fotoshopu fazla kkaçırmışsın gibi geldi bana!
Kompozisyon, renkler, derinlik mükemmel. Azametin konduğu sarı çiçekte de biraz patlama olmuş. Ama yinede karenin güzelliğinden bence hiçbirşey kaybetmemiş. Tebrikler. Ellerine sağlık.

Bayram

Selamlar özgür bey,
nefis bir çalışma bu aralar yaygın bir tür.
En güzel dileklerimle,
hoşcakalın.

This is awesome, Özgür!
So nice to see a shot from you!
I love the beautiful shades of yellow and green, and the sharp details of the butterfly!
Bravo!

Günaydın Özgür,
Nihayet senin de fotona yorum yazma fırsatı bulduk. Elimize düştün:)) Sarı üstüne sarı... Çok hoş bir kompozisyon.
Eline emeğine sağlık.

Güzel bir haftasonu geçirmeniz dileğimle.
Selamlar,ellerinize sağlık..

Hi Ozgur,
A lovely capture of this beautiful Clouded yellow butterfly. Good sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Özgür,
It's always great to see a new post of you. Beautiful butterfly and surroundings, nice lights, acceptable sharpness. Which I liked less is the blown out sky - I tried to correct it in my WS, together with a personal idea: changing white balance of the pic to cooler direction, by using cyan filter. I hope you'll like it. My playing with the colors was just a personal idea, I like the original color tones also. Except for the sky, a great photo. Tfs.
Friendly regards, László

Preciosa imagen de esta mariposa, composición en tonos amarillos estupendos, perfecta nitidez.

A sharp details and good view.

Good shot of a Clouded Yellow, Ozgur. The markings on the wings are well captured.
From composition point of view, I would reduce the space behind the butterfly and have more of it in front of it.
Thanks.

Hello Ozgur,
An outstanding image of this Clouded Yellwo. Love the way the suns rays illuminate the wings form behind, showing great detail and beautiful vivid colors. Nicely composed image with wonderful exposure. Well done!!
Ron

Interesante conjunto, aunque parece que el fotógrafo :-) se movió un poco.
Interesante el poder apreciar el entorno del insecto.
Saludos Ozgur: Josep Ignasi.

Dear Ozgur

A beautiful combination of colour and patterns - as well as movement - as if the butterfly had only just landed. Nomen et omen: as yellow as butter :-))



Your photographic technique is perfect! Congratulations on a beautiful image and thank you for showing it on TrekNature.

I wish you a nice week-end
