My previous post on this species Here

The Bamboo Treebrown was lapping on the cement floor at my house. It was a bit difficult shot as the light was from the back of this dark colored butterfly.

Hi Jitti.
Very attractive close-up taken at so impressive low POV. Despite the light BG image of the butterfly is exposed very well and all details of the insect are visible perfectly. DOF is also precise. Image of the butterfly is in focus despite the shallow DOF. All the best to you and kind regards.

Ciao Jitti, great macro with interesting butterfly, wonderful colors, good details and splendid sharpness, very well done, have a good Sunday, ciao Silvio

Hello JC,

Interesting for once to see a butterfly on a background without any green at all..!
Seems like the little fellow is dancing on snow, hehehe...
Excellent details in the wings, colours & pattern is well reproduced!
