Hello Jitti,
Excellent capture of this Ypthima satyrid. This is sharp and well composed with fine contrasting neutral bg.
I may well be similis, otherwise it could be baldus, the Common Five-ring. I guess it depends on where you took this shot. If it was east of the Malayan Peninsula then similis is likely.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Hello Jitti,
Great shot of this wonderfull butterfly, excellent on colours, sharpness and details.
Great work

Whatever the species, you have shot it very well, JC. What a perfect match between the colour of the butterfly and the plant it is sitting on!
The wings with those fine designs and eye-spots on them look very attractive. The focus is spot on and the composition beautiful.

Amazing depth and detail. The smooth background makes the butterfly look alive on the screen. Well done.

Sawasdee Jitti,
that's a noble one, I love the design of the wings and you captured this beauty with perfect sharpness. I'm a little jelous, you are living in a real paradise ...
In Germany it's grey and cold. Today we had a few hours sunshine with temperature max. 10 Degree Celsius. I wanted to spend my holidays in Thailand this year, but I only have time in September, I think it's rainy in Thailand?!? - or in November - than it's to expensive for me, about 500 - 700 Dollar more for one Person than in the other months!!!
So I have to wait until April 2008 :-( I'm sad, such a long time!!!
So thanks for the shots, bye and greetings

Hello Jitti,
there are already so many positive comments - what can I add? I will add the picture to my THEME on Satyridae Worldwide. I think it will constitute one of the favourite pictures there.
Although the details of the wing pattern are very clear, it is not easy to identify the species. There are several possibilities - but I can't decide for one with 100% reliability. It can be similis or baldus, as 'Argus' suggested, but sobrina is also possible. Perhaps, we have to leave it open.
Best wishes, Peter

Bonjour Jitti

C'est une excellente macro de ce papillon, cet insecte attire toujours beaucoup , car les espèces sont tellement variées que l'on en découvre toujours de nouveau.
Bravo et au revoir...JP

Mariposa difícil de retratar por su coloración y textura, retratada aquí con gran agudeza y foco sumados al gran control lumínico y DOF producen una escena realmente de alto nivel estético.
Me encanta la ubicación de los protagonistas dentro de la escena.
Mis mejores saludos JC... Ricardo

Butterfly difficult to depict for her coloration and texture, depicted here with great sharpness and focus added the great control light and DOF really produces a scene of high level aesthetic.
I love the location of the protagonists inside the scene.

Great capture again, Jitty!
The details are so thoroughful. Colors are vivid. The dry flower is like buterfly's body and is very becomming to the capture compo.

Good point of view, beautiful subject!

Well framed, superb macro qualities and fine natural colours!

Fantastic macro, excellent details and sharpness, great colors and contrast green-brown,very nice capture.


Hi Jitti,
Noticed this thumbnail in your portfolio.
Opened it and it happened to be a wonderful butterfly image; very beautiful butterfly and well depicted; concerning the latter, technically okay due to sharpness, DOF, exposure and so forth.
