Common Brimstone on a Dandelion by Stilleschrei Common Brimstone on a Dandelion by Stilleschrei
A yellow butterfly (male) called Common Brimstone (in latin Gonepteryx rhamni) having a drink from a dandelion.
Took the shot in my favorite meadow north of Roermond!

Yes. I can't wait to be able to photograph them. I always think of the Comma too when I see the Brimstone (one resembing a living leaf and one a dead leaf and both having a similar hibernation period and time of appearing in early spring). Imagine both of these in the same photo! I would like to do that!

One of my ambitions is to see or to make a video of the White Admiral in flight. :)
