[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I am not sure, but it looks like a Tiny Checkespot [Dymasia dymas]. Please let me know if it is correct or not correct.

This was captured at Highland of Cibodas, West Java. At a grass and bushy vegetation, near a small creek. Wing span [from tip of left wing to tip of right wing] is about 5 to 6 cm. Colors in this image very much resembles the true colors of this butterfly. Captured at a bright sunny day.

Hi Ben,
Great DOF. The butterfly looks as if it is floating in space. It is nice and sharp and the exposure is outstanding. Very nice colors. I do not know about the ID but is is an excellent photo. It does not look like the American Tiny Checkerspot from the photos I have seen.

Hi Ben, this is a clear and sharp presentation of the butterfly. Coloura in the butterfly wings are good, and especially against the BG
Well done

Hi Benyamin,
Excellent capture of this butterfly!
I like so much the clear details got and the sharpness of the image.
It's so beautiful the yellow and the patterns at the wings.
A great DOF to get that nicely blurred background.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Benyamin!

Very interesting tropical specie. Maybe not very colorfull, but still looks great. I like colours and composition - not only photo looks good, but also your frame and description.

Hello Benyamin,
Your POV gave you a very good angle, the pose you caught is beautiful,that tiny part of the plant he's standing on can hardly be seen and the butterfly seems to be standing on the air. Focus, composition and colors are very good. TFS

Hello Benyamin
This is really a wonderful shot with magnificent sharpness and most beautiful composition!
Surely Peter is right, but I think this is a strange kind of Acraea issoria, with so many black spots. I had never seen it.
Fantastic contrast, colors and presentation.
Congratulations and TFS

Can't help with the ID

Well composed and great sharpness and DOF
Good POV and OOF background.

Attractive species. TFS


Hi Benyamin,
This is such an impressive image of this very beautiful butterfly. The detail is just superb, lovely colours and a nice OOF background. Beautiful.

Hello Benyamin,
Another well exposed butterfly image, where you effectively use a quite bright background!
Lovely colour palette and excellent details in the insect...
Presentation is well composed, without distracting elements!

Benyamin, this is really great.

For a moment, I had the feeling you had captured the butterfly when it was about to fly.

Excellent colors, pov, composition and blurred bg. I like saturation too.

Hi Benyamin
Nice colours and composition. Great colours and POV.
Well done mf


Belle photo et en plein vol en plus,ce n' est pas facile car le vol du papillon est imprévisible, très belle prise et grande netteté surtout en plein vol. Amitiés Thomas

Good composition in the frame, great colors and details!

Hello Benyamin.

Nice butterfly, very beatiful image and colour.
