Hey Mike,
Your "Cabbage White in Flight" is an exquisite shot, and rightful first place in the contest it was in.
I don't see Cabbage White's here in Florida, its nice to see butterflies of different regions and countries.
A beautiful side view of the under wings, razor sharp and still shot, I can see every detail, even the antenna and the legs, absolutely beautiful!
I have enjoyed viewing this.
6 Stars!

    Thank you very much. The white flowers are garlic chives which I mistakenly planted in my garden several years ago and have now taken over most everywhere. They bloom for a couple weeks and attract every kind of pollinator there is. Along with lemon balm I would recommend that nobody ever plants these plants. Anyway I am very glad you like this shot. Thanks again.

    You are welcome Mike! Butterflies are my favorite photo subject, so I enjoy seeing others that I don't see here in Florida.

The white spot in the middle is a real distraction, pity, if it wasn't there the photo could be really excellent

nice focus and light on the butterfly wings

thanks for sharing

Nice unique name for a cute butterfly!

Another visually balanced composition where both compositional elements lend a synergistic effect.
Fantabulous chiaroscuro technique popping out the subject against a darker backdrop!

Nice perspective & narrow DOF.

Thanks for sharing...

Nice shot of this cabbage white, in flight as it lands on a blossom. Good sharp focus on the butterfly and great stop action. Good color Throughout the image. The background sets the butterfly off very well. Good luck in the contest.

    Thank you very much. Several years ago I thought I would plant some garlic chives in my garden and now they are everywhere. I could never dig them up as fast as they spread, but all the insects seem to love them. Glad you like this one. Thanks again.
