Hello Jitti,
The thumbnail shows the flower more than the butterfly but as you have captured this C. pomona so sharply it shows up pretty well against the green BG. Nice composition and lighting.
TFS and best wishes,

Hello Jitti,
amazing details, the sharpness is great.
Lovely OOF BG.


Hello JC,
Superb details in both main subjects!
Great texture in the wings, and I have no problem in understanding why the fresh flower is attractive to the butterfly...
A fine composition, well done on macro work!

Hi Jitti,
A beautiful composition of this butterfly over the yellow flower. Nice details and an unusual POV but looks very nice. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Jitti,
Very nice light & colors.
Excellent detail, DOF, and POV also.
The water droplets add well, it gives this composition a nice touch :)

Hello Jitti,
Loooks like the rain has just stopped and the rain-drenched flower has just got an eager visitor. Excellent sharp focus on both and sharp details. Very beautiful colours against the plain background. Lovely composition.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

hello Jitti,
The colours of this picture are very harmonious and let the butterfly and the flower appear in a very poetic light. The almost transparent wings of the lemon Emigrant and the droplets on the plant are some more "plus" for this picture.
Well seen.
