Pieris brassicae (the cabbage white butterfly):

Family of Pieridae, Subfamily of Pierinae

Scale: 5,6-6,6 cm.

Description: white, edge of the former wing black with two black spots in the female. Below white, lower wing greenish grey pale.

Habitat: this butterfly can be observed everywhere where there are flowers, even downtown.

Period of flight: from April at September.

Phase of hibernation: chrysalis. The green caterpillar is punctuated of black and has yellow stripes on the back and the sides. It nourishes nasturtium (Tropaleoum) and cabbages (Brassica).

Trs belle image! La lumire et la nettet sont parfaites. L'utilisation du flash avec le second plan noir noir fait bien ressortir le sujet. Bravo!

Common, yet very nice. Perfect exposure Christophe. It is very hard to capture butterfly with its white wings, but you did great job here!

Hello Christophe!
Very nice capture.Large DOF,vivid colors,clear details and composition are wonderful.TFS...:-)
PS:Recently I'm using nearly the same technic for getting large DOF.(Manuel mode,built in flash,F22,1/250,ISO-400 at 40-45cm distance gives good results)

Great shot Christophe!
Perfect exposure, great details and composition, very beautiful colours.
I like it very much.
WELL DONE!

Salut Christophe,
Trs bonne nettet sur ce joli papillon, la lumire est belle, et la diagonale forme par les petites fleurs dynamise la composition. Le fond est un peu sombre mon gout, mais au moins de cette facon le papillon resort trs bien

Amitis,

Vincent
