Hi Jitti

Nice shot - great POV and detail. I like the similar coloured BG too.


Hi Jitti.
Amazing picture of this beauty. Wonderful low POV, superb sharpness and details. I also like very attractive smooth BG too. But what is the substrate the butterfly sits on which? My compliments and best regards.

Hello Jitti

Another beautiful butterfly image,there is cold weather here now,and some snow today so seeing colourful images is just what I needed.
The shot is well composed with sharp focus and details.
The POV and DOF are excellent.


I have been missing a lot of your good work, lately, JC.
Anyway, this is a stunningly beautiful capture of this butterfly. The focus is just perfect and the POV presents a lovely aspect of this creature.
TFS and regards.

Hello jitti,
Excellent macro of the Ciliate Blue with the wings closed. The shapness, composition and colours are superb. The BG, though not contrasting much in colour still allows the butterfly to stand out owing to the fine bokeh.
Well done and thanks,

Hola Jitti,
Excelente toma de gran definición, con un DOF muy acertado destacando muy bien la mariposa del fondo, buen control lumínico. Saludos
José Ramón

Hello Jitti,
Great image!
Love your POV; very low.

Last but not least: wpnderful natural light...

Hello Jitti, long time no see :)
This is impressive! I don't know how you can capture a butterfly @ 1/30 sec... Maybe the climate in your country is helping to make them being more still... This is a beautiful perspective with nice tones of colors and exposure. They are beautiful little creature :) Thanks,

Hello Jitti
Fantastic capture of this Ciliate Blue from an outstanding POV and with excellent focus. I wonder how you make it with a reflex. I think it must be rather difficult.
Magnificent job.

Very very nice uniform colours. Great focus and clarity.
