It’s a common butterfly but not very easy to photograph as I often found the Brimstone resting on messy places low on the ground, especially in springtime. And, I must admit that since my accident with the motor cycle I became a bit lazy photographing butterflies low on the ground as my knees hurts quickly.
So, this beautiful male Brimstone was resting on a flower a few days ago. It was a warm and cloudy day and like me he was lazy. In the first place I had no interest photographing him as I was busy with other things. But after a while I couldn’t resist and took my camera and tripod; he was very cooperative and I had enough time to make photo’s from different positions. Due to the backlight his wings became a bit transparent and his tender body visible.
