Another shot from my archives, this one a shot of mating Common Emigrants.

The Common Emigrant or Lemon Emigrant (Catopsilia pomona) is a medium sized pierid butterfly found in Asia and parts of Australia. The species gets its name from its habit of migration. Some early authors considered them as two distinct species Catopsilia crocale and Catopsilia pomona.

Thanks for stopping by!

These mating butterflies are literally immersed into each other, making a novel shape with their combined wings, Goldy.

Hi Goldy. A fine close up of the pair of lemon butterflies together.I like the way we can see the difference in the colours . They stand out well from the darker green of the BG. TFS.

This has a ethereal look to it..something I have seen in colors /background/ but almost can see their auras again.Very interesting point of view!

Aesthetically pleasing image Goldy, great setting for your lovers.
Like the soft light and color, nice detail too :)
Well done & thank you for your kind words on my cardinal.

Hola Goldy

Original composición de estas dos mariposas, perfecto contraste en tonos verdes y buena nitidez.

Un saludo de Antonio

Hi Goldy.
You have pictured a touching scene and you have done it at an amazing surroundings. I am impressed with nice soft lighting and delicate colours. BG is very attractive and suitable for the scene. My compliments and best regards.

Hi Goldy,
How are you , its been a long time :-) This is a good shot of these butterflies and the difference in the colors is striking and i have noticed this a lot in emigrants and also usually they mate with an freshly emerged partner so one is going to be fresh , where as the other would be battered :-).
On the photography side the BG is bit distracting.
