Hi Makkala,
This is technically very good, with excellent DOF and sharpness. It is a butterfly from the family Hesperiidae, sometimes called the Skippers. A positive identification is very difficult without seing more of the upper wing surface, but it looks as though it is from the genus Pelopidas, possibly Pelopidas agna (Moore). Another possibility is Polytremis eltola (Hewitson). Butterflies in Thailand, Volume 5 by Bro. Amnuay Pinratana has much information. Thanks

hi manee,
a nice picture.this one belongs to Skipper butterfly's family.
good details.

Manee, This is a skipper, a form of butterfly with smaller wings. The picture is very good. I love the background as well as the sharp skipper.

que de finesse et de netteté. tous les détails de cet insecte se distinguent parfaitement. bravo. et le contraste des couleurs renforce encore plus le sujet central. bravo.
