We are neighbours today!
Nice capture of this Satyrid, totally unknown to me. It looks like a species that keeps to the shade, where you took this. This is nice and sharp and stands out well against the dark BG in a fine composition.
Thanks for sharing this one and enjoy your weekend,

This is a beautiful butterfly captured in clear background. The details is very well seen and again almost a camouflage as the previous post.

Very nice a bit back POV and pictured scene. Beautiful butterfly on a dry stem which has similar color as butterfly is looked perfectly. BG, its coloration and smoothness is great too. My compliments.

A beautiful picture with wonderful colors that match each other and blend so well with the background. I have never seen a Mycalesis and it is lovely with wonderful markings.

Excellent pose with wonderful detail. Good isolation from BG and great composition.
Looking at my Butterflies in Thailand Volume 6, I am thinking this is either Mycalesis feancisca or M. adamsoni. Pictures can be misleading with these species as they do vary between wet and dry seasons, as you mention, although distribution details for these are probably incomplete so I may be well wrong. Anyway, you have captured a fine picture with a wealth of detail and a cool BG. Thanks.
before I started to comment your picture, I first studied the previous notes. So, I can make the story short,
because Alan (acassidy) already explained my thoughts concerning identification.
The species is shown well-focused and the detail-rich wing pattern is well reproduced.
I will include the picture in the Theme on Satyrinae, immediately.
Best wishes, Peter

Tone of colors, composition and details are excellent. This is unusual specie to me; I like the texture of its wings :)! Well seen and TFS,

Good point of view and splendid details!
The composition is very effective in displaying the insect well...
Good texture in the wings, sharp fine details and the spatial feeling is great!

A lovely capture of this little ผีเสื้อตาลพุ่มเหลือบม่วง or #57. An excellent DOF that covered the zone of the butterfly very adequately and rendered the BG well OOF. The colours are very natural and the details are well defined.
Well done and TFS.
