Green-veined White - Pieris napi

Family: Pieridae.

Flight Time: April - September.

Size: 36-50mm

Altitude: 0-2000m

This is a common butterfly of damp grassland and woodland rides and is often mistaken for its cousin, the Small White. It can be found from spring through to autumn in parks and gardens, as well as less-urban areas such as meadows and woodland rides. The first brood has lighter upperside markings than later broods, but darker underside markings. The so-called green veins on the underside of the adults are, in fact, an illusion created by a subtle combination of yellow and black scales.

Hi Marx. This is a first classclose up of the pair together. You have taken a fine side view of the Green-veined Whites showing all of the wing details. All with bright natural colours. Well taken TFS.

Hi Marx,why wait so longtime to post a fanatstic pic like that? It's one of the best "time of love" of this season,very impressive under all corner of view! My double compliments,have a nice Sunday! Luciano

Wow Marx, this is really something special, not only for the moment of mating, but also for the beautiful details of both the butterflies and the flowers in the background. The pretty pink and green flowers are the ideal backdrop to highlight these two soft coloured butterflies. Wow again for the perfect light falling at just the right spots to enhance the overall outcome of this scenery that you have captured so well. It is one of those images which I consider to be soft on the eye. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
