The backlight by the sun onto this brimstone reveals the contours of its body under its gown. The brimstone is called (Gonepteryx rhamni) in latin and the flower it is feeding on is thrift (Ameria maritima).

I have had the idea of this shot for a while but never got the right butterfly, angle of view, or correct position of the sun in my garden. So yesterday, I went out in the field and kneeled with my ZD 50-200+EC-14+Canon 500D (+2 achromatiuc close-up lens) in front of the thrift and managed to take a shot of this delicate butterfly exactly as I had anticipated.

Cheers, Jens

OK. Hvad jeg forst?r kan man bruge hvilket af navnene man ?nsker. Eller er der mske nogen navnekommite der har annuleret Gonepteryx?

Med venlig hilsen, Jens.

Nej, ingen problemer her - det var helt i orden!

Can you see if this is a male or female?

Cheers, Jens.
