[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Any of several lepidopteran species of the family Pieridae that are found worldwide.

Adults have a wingspan of 1.5–2.5 in. (38–63 mm); the wings are white, with black marginal markings. The pattern and colour of many species vary with sex and season. Many of the green, slender larvae, most of which are covered with a short down, or pile, are pests of garden crops. The pupae are attached to a twig by a posterior spine and a girdle of silk. Named also cabbage white ans Cavolaia

Ciao Luciano,
Excellent macro!
It's very good your close approach and all the textures caught on the butterfly and flower.
In despite the harsh light, you keep details on bright areas.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Luciano,

Very nice picture of this white butterfly with sharp detail.

Have a nice day,

Bonjour Luciano
Très belle composition, lumière, couleurs et netteté.

Hello Luciano,
very nice capture with beautiful details

Buongiorno Luciano,
that's a brilliant and sharp picture of brassicae. Not so easy to present the white wings exposed to bright sunlight in a suitable way. However, you were successful here. Wing venation, the scaly surface and the 'hairy' wing margins are well seen. Background noise appears a bit too high. I tried a workshop only considering this aspect. I hope that you will like the result.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Luciano It's a really good capture of this white butterfly. You show all parts of the butterfly sharply - well done on teh colours too

Very beautiful, Luciano...
Do like the structure and details in these 'whites'...
Well done

Ciao Luciano, la cavolaia maggiore è una di quelle che si vedono di più anche dalle mie parti, pensa che l'ho fotografata anche ieri!
Bellissima la tua macro con i dettagli resi splendidamente, anche nelle ali bianche che son maledette per quanto vengono bruciate, ottima la composizione, bravo, ciao Silvio

Great handling of the color white.
Excellent composition and great colors. Just beautiful!

Splendid capture of the Cabbage White in a beautiful composition. Excellent exposure and very sharp details. The colours are natural and the composition very nice.

Ciao Luciano,
Una delicata farfalla, molto belli detagli nel corpo dell´insetto. L´esposizione è ottima se uno pensa nella forte luce del sole ed i colori chiari della farfalla.
Buon e piacevole lavoro
