Hello JC,
It indeed looks like arose in bloom, good details of the Common Rose.
I would have preferred to lower the Gamma by a level.But I love the Pov you have used.
Well Done.
TFS & Cheers

Hi Jitti,
Outstanding shot of the common rose. Such vibrant colours and immaculate sharpness. The patterns on its wings are delicate and neat. Perfect lighting and a nice pose. I like your POV and your precise DOF which results in a smooth BG. Very nicely composed and presented. Kudos.

Hello Jitti,
Superb capture of the Common Rose, a butterfly that I have never seen in real life.
This shot is sharp and well composed with the neutral Bg and the tree that this female is resting on.
Skillful use of flash.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Excellent capture of this beauty in profile.

Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Hi Jitti,
excellent shot, your composition has a lot of dimension. Great POV, the OOF BG shows off this butterfly so well and it's colors contrast with the BG very well.
Sharpness and exposure are very good.

Good use of flash, nice colors and detail Jitti.
Perhaps a bit less space right IMHO. Well done.

Hi Jitti,
Very beautiful butterfly, captured from a perfect pov and pose. Wings are fantastic!
TFS, Josť M.

I was off TN for 4 days due to failed internet connection, JC, so I am looking at your fresh pictures in a sort of retrospect :-).
Common Rose is a pretty butterfly which you have captured very well in this shot. It is rare to see a butterfly hugging a tree!
Very sharp and crisp image with lovely colours.
TFS and regards.
