[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This butterfly is from my archives of 2014.

Pieris brassicae, the large white, also called cabbage butterfly, cabbage white, cabbage moth (erroneously), or in India the large cabbage white, is a butterfly in the family Pieridae. It is a close relative of the small white, Pieris rapae.

The large white is common throughout Europe, North Africa, Asia even through the Himalayas.

Hello Ram,
Your beautiful Large White tried to hide its head from you, but you still managed to capture its face. Awesome details and the best whites possible. The exposure is perfect and I liked the way it's framed. Great shot!!

Ciao Ram, great macro of lovely butterfly on beautiful White flowers, wonderful colors, splendid light, fine details and excellent sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Ram,

The flowers are helping to frame the butterfly. The point of view is showing the details of the Large White butterfly. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.
