Hi Jitti,
Great macro shot on this Skipper. There are so many variations it is hard to identify them correctly. Great colors and tack sharp detail in this shot. Perfect DOF. I love the texture of the floor.

Hi Jitti,

I have so much catching up to do after being away! This Skipper is just wonderful. Unusual to see one walking on the floor. Razor-sharp details that are marvelous. Wonderful contrast between the butterfly and the background.

Good one! Great detail and DOF on this Skipper! Bravo! Cheers, Klaus

Hi Jitti,
Sorry for delay in writting comment :)
Maybe not very colourful, and maybe not in the very natural habitat (I mean - BG), but with great pose of butterfly and very good timing. DOF and details are impressive and the note informative.
TFS and have a nice weekend!

Hi Jitti,
Wonderful shot with immaculate sharpness and lovely colours. The lighting and focus are superb and you have freezed a fine moment here. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Excellent sharp image of this skipper.
Well composed and the white floor provides good contrast so that the butterflies pattern details stand out clearly.
