Hello Jitti,

Very sharp picture of this butterfly. Good contrast against the background. I do not like too much the blurry trunk in front of the trunk where the butterfly is.

Hello Jitti,
This time it is number 50! Bravo for so many species. This bamboo TreeBrown has very subtle colours and patterns on the wings. You show it with excellent sharpness and good pose. I just wonder about the left part of the shot. What happened? I just looked at the thumbnail and I realised that there were two trees! So I have the explanation.
Thanks and best regards

Hi Jitti.
You have collected amazing butterfly gallery. My heart congratulations. This one is superb. And you have catch it wonderfully. Great details and sharpness, fine rich colours, excellent dark BG. Bravo. Only one question. Why is the left side of trunk blurred and right side so sharp? TFS and best regards.

Hello Jitti,
This is a great capture of this Satyrid well portrayed using flash. It looks a little Like the S. American Brassolids (Owl Butterflies) and seems to have the same type of shady habitat- interesting example of parallel evolution.
Technically superb shot but the position of the two branches is a little unfortunate.
Great shot anyway of this interesting species.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan
