Hi Jitti

Lovely texture in the wing of the butterfly and rich colours. A lovely posting.


Hi Jitti,
A beautiful capture of this nice looking butterfly. Excellent POV and composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Impressing specie, the colour gradient is lovely, and the exposure spot on to get right those dark parts. The velvet texture is well seen, as is the fibres of the leafe.
Nice composition too, thanks and regards, Felipe.

Hi jiti,
this is the first time I am seeing this kind of butterfly.Very well captured. Good DOF which helps to show both wings' details. Nice colors.Look at his eyes. Very God work


Great capture of this beautiful specimen. A minor nit might be that it seems to be a tad over sharpened. Kudos!

hi jitti,
beautiful shot, nice image quality, good details captured, the texture and the pattern on the wings look beautiful, nice pov, well composed image,
tfs & regards

Hi Jitti,
Gorgeous looking butterfly this, which I am seeing for the first time. Immaculate sharpness on its wings and lovely colours. Excellent POV and a superb pose captured. I would request you to go that park again and capture its full wings from the back - it would look absolutely amazing. Nevertheless, this looks awesome too. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Jitti,
Nice contrast between colours of the BG and butterfly. Nice and sharp and a deep DOF.
Good photo,

Hello JC,
Seems like you live in an eldorado for a butterfly lover!
This one has some amazing and unusual patterns, beautiful without the distinct markings...
Lovely textures, well composed presentation!

Hello Jitti,

Very interesting and nice picture of this splendid butterfly! Excellent but not easy exposition here letting us see the different variations of the dark colors... Colors which seems very natural! Excellent POV letting us see both antennas and great composition!

Well done!

Hi Jitti,
I think it's one the most beautiful butterfly I ever seen!!
Perfect pose, colours, composition and details.

Hi Jitti,
The image is tastefully done on the POV, I like how the leaf blade covers half the image diagnally creating a wonderful stage for your beautiful butterfly model that shows super detail and very nice natural colors. :)

j' adore ce magnifique papillon, la couleur est peu commune, le fond est super, bravo, amitiès

Hi Jitti.
One your one of the best butterfly picture. It is simply perfect at every respect. First of all, its subject is amazing. Impressive leaf and surroundings and terrific, colourfull beautiful butterfly are looked perfectly on the so well detailed BG. Sharpness of the butterfly, reflection of its texture are superb. Soft lighting is very impressive and pleasant. POV is selected precisely. Bravo and TFS.
