Clouded Yellow variety helice

By Julian
This female helice variety of Clouded Yellow was photographed on a holiday tour I did with Greenwings in 2010 to Greece. About 10% of Clouded Yellow females have this pale form with a pastel yellow almost white underside to the upper wing which makes for a striking looking insect. Hope you like it. Comments appreciated.
