Black & White

Large White Pieris brassicae

It appears it has been quite a good year here for butterflies, which is really good news. This Large White (Pieris brassicae) made a fleeting visit to my garden before fluttering off over the fence to elsewhere.

These ‘Whites’ can be quite a challenge to photograph, especially in bright sunshine. Auto camera setting never seem to work as the whites get blown out loosing the fine lines and detail in the wings, so I always drop exposure on full manual to try and compensate.

  1. Very nice! And you are absolutely right: auto camera setting is not working with the white ones. You are lucky that you had so many butterflies. This year wasn’t so good overhere. In total there are too less. We have our second drought now and at least the kind of butterflies i.e. the caterpillars who like thistles and weed do well here.
