[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a widespread species occurring from north Africa to most of Scandinavia. It is most conspicuous during the first warm days of spring when is is one of the first butterflies on the wing following hibernation. It flies again in summer when it feeds for several weeks, storing energy for the forthcoming dormant period. Towards the end of August the perfect butterflies disappear for the winter and until the onset of spring they will not stir even on hot autumn days.

Hi Mariana,

An exceptionally beautiful picture of this butterfly on the lovely flower. It is so sharp with the loveliest colors. I am as fascinated by the flower as with the perfect butterfly. The wonderful background enhances the two subjects even more.


That's a perfect arrangement, Mariana, those colours, the delicate wings of the brimstone, it's fantastic and I like it so much, thanks

Your compositions are always a delight to look at and here you show both butterfly and flower very sharply. Wonderful colours too! I recognise the flower but I can't recall its name! Do you know?

Seara buna stimata doamna,
pe frigul asta de la voi .... bine ca ai colectia bine pusa la caldura. Macar asa prin pozele care le expui sa ne mai incalzim si noi ( desi la mine sunt numai -5 grade).
Superba compozitia, felicitarile mele calduroase.
O noapte ... foarte calduroasa,
