Gonepteryx rhamni (known as the Common Brimstone) is a butterfly of the Pieridae family. It lives in Europe, North Africa and Asia; across much of its range, it is the only species of its genus, and is therefore simply known locally as the brimstone.
G. rhamni is one of the longest lived butterflies, living up to thirteen months, although most of this time is spent in hibernation.
As it is often the first butterfly to be seen in the spring, sometimes as early as January when hibernating adults are awoken on a sunny day, there is a popular myth that it is this butterfly which gave us the word butterfly, a corruption of butter-coloured fly.

Le Citron (Gonepteryx rhamni) est un insecte lépidoptère de la famille des Pieridae. Le Citron hiverne à l'automne puis vole à nouveau dès les premiers jours de soleil. C'est l'un des papillons à la plus grande longévité à l'état d'imago.On le voit dès le début du printemps, voltigeant partout où croissent les plantes (bourdaine, nerprun) dont se nourrissent les chenilles.

Excellent capture! These butterflies tend to flit around a lot, not willing to settle on anything so you can take their picture.

That would be a hard on to spot in the green leaves. ;)

Great capture with the contrast on the old brown leaf! :)

What a beautiful shot. Love all the earthy colors and textures. Did you use a flash on this or was this existing light?
