Lemon tree butterfly, also known as green leaf butterfly. Its scientific name is Gonepteryx rhamni . I got it in mountain edges under a very sunny climate. From my experience it is one of the most restless butterflies during flight.    When I say restless I am referring to the short time it can last perched on a flower or a leaf.

Its color and shape make it difficult to detect it quickly among the plants, as you will see, it can camouflage itself without any problem. It is called the lemon tree butterfly because of its color and also because of the places it frequents. Each butterfly is attracted to a specific plant, the lemon tree being one of them.


Of all the species it is said that this is one of the longest-lived, its approximate lifespan is one year. When I saw this butterfly fly over me I tried not to lose sight of it. It was a challenge at that moment. I let it pre-censify my stay so as not to scare it away, I kept still, with my gaze fixed until it finally decided to stop its flight.

At that moment I took the opportunity to take several shots with my Samsung Galaxy A-30 phone.    I enlarged the image to capture MACROPHOTOGRAPHS.

I was impressed by the texture of this butterfly's wings. Its veins protrude impressively. I guess they give it enough strength to fly. Whoever has held a butterfly by the wings has had the opportunity to feel the strength of the flapping. I have experienced it, the sad thing is that in attempts to escape we can hurt them by breaking their wings.


A butterfly is for me the most beautiful of all insect species. Its life experience is unique. Its metamorphosis, the most complete.

My knowledge of butterflies is entirely empirical. As a lover of photography I have been involved with this subject of insects at the same time. I get excited when I have in front of me some species, I investigate, compare, analyze the behavior and about it I give my opinion.

I hope to bring varied information for lovers of photography and for specialists of these animal species. I live in Venezuela, specifically in the capital, Caracas. Best regards.
