[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think it is :
Pontia daplidice (Bath White), a migrating butterfly of the family Pieridae.
It is said that it is quite common, but I didn't meet it often.
For me it is a very subtle coloured butterfly, which is very shy and not easy to catch. This specimen I caught quite late in the evening and therefor it was less moving around.
If I'm wrong with the identification, help is welcome

Hello anne,
Excellent capture of a female Bath White. This is sharp with fine BG and I like the composition with the seeding dandelion heads.
A real summer shot!
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Bon jour Anne,
Encore un cliché magistral de ta maîtrise profilée! Ici l'impressionisme, vraiment très réussit, fait une impression stupéfiante de nuances vertes et gris-blanches, adoucites à point et bien mélangées, d'un flou artistique attractif. Cette image onirique et douce me plaît beaucoup, un toile parfaitement réalisé pour l'atelier d'encadrement... Merci beaucoup pour ce partage inspirant de cette P. daplidice exceptionnellement sympathique de ce point de vue légèrement "obscurci" et "rêverique" juste assez!
Bonne journée, amicalement

bonjour anne
je pense que la mise au point n'a pas été obtimum sur la tête ou plutot les yeux mais j'aime bien la texture les couleurs et motifs des ailes de ce beau papillon.

Hi Anel,
Very beautiful capture of this lovely butterfly amongst the fluffy seed heads. Sharp details and lovely soft colours in this beautiful composition.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Hice shot Anne the shallow dof has made the detail of the dandelions nice and soft and the detail of the butterfly stands out well I think a little more dof might be nice say go for f8 but I appretiate light was apparently low. Well done a good shot tfs rgds Necip

Hi Anne.
Hereof butterfly I I don't know,but I like him very much.Your capture is splendid.Beautiful colors with pleasant tones.Very nice point of view and very good managed DOF with pretty blurry BG.Only composition would maybe was better no centric(IMHO).Thanks for sharing this beautiful picture.
Best greetings Milos.

Hallo Anne,
wundervolle Composition in Weiss und Grün.
Vielleicht vertrüge das Bild eine leichte Nachschärfung, doch die Transparenz und Leichtigkeit sind sehr gelungen und berührend. Mit Dank und besten Grüßen,

Hello Anne,
a great shot here Anne. A white and soft subject which is caught with soft background, yet it very discernable. i think that is the use of its camouflage patches on its wings.
It is aharp and the dandelion too, they make a good combination.
A nicely composed shot.
