[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a common butterfly in Brisbane. In a sunny summer day, if you see a medium size lemon colour butterfly that fly pass by, it is most likely a Lemon Migrant. If you wait for a few seconds, there usually will be another Lemon Migrant fly pass, on the same path and heading to the south. They usually flies two to three meters above the ground.

Their wings colour are vary from yellow to creamy white, with dark margins. Their caterpillars are well camouflaged green colour with creamy white lines alone each side. Caterpillars feed on Golden Rain Cassia fistula and other native Cassia.

Fine composition and lighting, good exposure to get the details on the emigrant. Too much depth, I feel.
