Nicely captured and cropped! I also like the nicely blended green to brown background.
Cheers...Donna 😊

I agree with Donna, lovely image. The flowers falling off are an added bonus.
Kind regards, Yvonne

Many thanks, Donna & Yvonne, for your kind comments.

I've seen lots of these Whites around this year but they rarely stay still long enough to get a decent shot.
I was especially fortunate with this one that I had the uncluttered background to the butterfly - sometimes you just need that bit of luck !

Thanks again
Peter

Pin sharp with a moving target
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass
