Hola Ram, bonita composición, con colores agradables, Quizá le falte enfoque en la cabeza, pero esta especie es muy inquieta y nos da pocas oportunidades de enfocar. Un saludo

Very nice presentation of this butterfly on the yellow flower. Very good POV, DOF and shapness. Wonderful detail of the wings. Beautiful light and colours.

I love the colours here (again) and the shallow DOF, which works well.
Hi Mr. Ram,
A nice capture of this beautiful cabbage white which is a difficult subject for me or I am unlucky to shoot this. Excellent composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.
BTW: did you see the dedication of two wasp moths to you by me??

Ram I adore this particular one of the butterfly world. Last summer, the Cabbage White, was the only kind which was patient with me as a photographer so close in. And although they are not what I would call a pure white by any standards, they are close enough as indicated by the adjective definition cabbage.
There is almost a cadence to your image...from a darker background slowly then to the left into white or vis versa. And the highly yellow floral is as much as part of the image as the butterfly...they are symbiotic! Tres bien!

You chose a very nice composition with this tinny fast moving creature. Details on its wings are very clear and sharp. A smaller aperture would have brought out more details on its head I think. Tones of colors and plain green background makes it stands out well. Thanks,

A beautiful shot.
That white cabbage really shows off well against the dark BG.
Subtle light and great details.
The yellow flowers offer a nice contrast.
TFS. : )

Hi Ram, this is a butterfly that I used to see a lot of, as a boy (in Canada). Then the numbers seemed to drop off. I have no idea what the cause might be, other butterflies still seem prevalent. I have seen a lot of these since coming to Australia. This shot is seen in good light and I like how you can see the texture on those wings, right down to the "powder" level. Your depth of field is tight, but your focus is dead on, with respect to capture of the butterfly. Colour is good on the butterfly and the plants he is resting on.
