This Large Cabbage White made its appearance in my school garden as the first butterfly of the season today morning. I was taking pics of a school block when I noticed it and had to contend with 18-200mm lens to take its picture.
Thanks for looking, anyway!

Hi Ram,i seen the first 15 days ago,but now the cold is back,today -10 degrees,so i must to wait some days to see something new. Your is a lucky day,the first of the season,i'm not sure that this is a large cabbage usually appers later. In my country the first of this family are the Pieris napi,but it's possible that in your is different. My compliments for the nice composition and the excellent quality. Have a nice day and thanks,Luciano

Hello Ram,
Very Fine picture of the First butterfly of the Season in your School Garden.
The neutral background is ideal.
Kind regards

Dear Ram,
congratulations to you for that perfectly composed, very clear and well detailed presentation of this sason's first butterfly! That Cabbage White on a freshly opened blossom has been approached by you from a perfect angle to show both sides of wings perfectly clear, and I like that nicely contrasting plain background obviously supplied by a painted wall. Thank you!
With best regards,

P.S.: Thank you very much for your visit and very kind words of warm welcome that you sent to me on my posting of a caterpillar in front of mountains a few days ago! I have become a rare visitor to this site, but I always enjoy coming here again, seeing dear companions "from the old days" still doing very well here.

Very nice picture Ram. Yes it belong to the Pieris family.
Thank you for sharing it.

Hi Ram,
Congratulations for shooting the 1st butterfly of the season, the photo's very spectacular. First of all the composition is pleasant to view, well thought out. Secondly, exposure is spot on, nice details on both the bright and the darker parts. Thirdly, color contrast is awesome, especially with this simple, pale buff background. Absolutely an image to be proud of. Bravo.
Kind regards from Ireland, László
