I am getting desperate finding nature to photograph, photographic stir crazy. Here is a Brimstone. They are very skittish, settle rarely and I for one can't approach one. This called for the Sigma 150-600mm on the 90D, and I was a respectful 5m back. His camouflaging is very good and he looks like a leaf when he closes his wings. His proboscis is sucking nectar.

Some from the last months: Agraulis vanillae - Gulf fritillary; Brephidium exilis - Western pygmy blue; unknown grasshopper; Strymon bazochii - The Smaller Lantana Butterfly and Tenodera aridifolia - Chinese Mantis.
I'm not sure for the ID of the Mantis and have no idea what is that grasshopper

Thanks Click!
Just see what my daughter is doing with the macro lens (I got permission to post this one here:) - she is posting on Instagram...). Proud dad/teacher is talking right now:giggle:! She is shooting hand-hold, outdoor (hiking) and no stacking...

if you look carefully with the wings it finishes the contour of the leaf with the illusion of depth of feild

Nice shot Alan but I would bet for the Green-veined White (Pieris napi)! Usually they appear earlier than the Cabbage-whites in the spring.
Thanks for getting me to check on this. You are quite correct.
