Hello friends in TN,

EDIT: Mike suggested that this is The Common Pierrot (Castalius rosimon) and I guess he is right from the matching features. I can't edit the label in the image, sorry :-(

This is another small butterfly that was captured under the shaded area outside my fence.

Hi Jusni, nice shot of this Malayan Butterfly. This is my introduction to this species so thankyou for that. The shot is sharp providing good definition to his side view. Lighting is good. I see you used a flash very effectively here. Colour is good, seen mainly in the leaves and your depth of field is good with great focus on the butterfly and near plant while nicely muting the background.

Many thanks for shring this awesome speices that I first encounter!
Very fine sharpness with beautiful colour and so much details
A great image well presented
well done

Hello Jusni,

What a beautiful butterfly, very nice colors and patterns


Hello Jusni !
This is an excellent picture of a beautiful butterfly - I love the markings on his wings. I really like the composition of this picture, with the butterfly and the leaves in FG, and the beautiful BG with lovely colors. POV, details, colors, exposure, everything is excellent, and your note was interesting as I didn't know this species before. Very well done !

Hi Jusni

This is The Common Pierrot

Castalius rosimon.

Regards Mike.

Salam Jusni. A black and white colour scheme- basic. but nevertheless attractive and eye-catching. The composition is nice with the addition of strong green.Regards. Klaudio.

Salam Jusni

Hello Jusni,
A beautiful sharp macro of the Common Pierrot. The technical aspects are excellent as are the POV and composition. The blurred BG and the leaves of the plant that it is on set it off well.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Hi Jusni,
Wonderful shot of this tiny but beautiful butterfly with awesome markings on its white wings. Superb control of harsh lighting and exposure levels and you have done a skilful job here. Nice pose captured with a great DOF and a fine POV. Excellent composition. Kudos.

Another fine b.fly macro from you Jusni, again perfectly lighted and composed in perfect focus against a nice, OOF BG.
TFS my friend.

What a fantastic shot!Perfect details and sharpness!The OOF BG is very instrumental in bringing all the focus to where it should be, the FG.
Very well composed and executed!

Ciao Jusni,
splendido il contrasto fra i colori delle ali, perfettamente a fuoco, e lo sfondo scuro ed omogeneo.
Bella la composizione.

Hello Jusni,
Fantastic contrasting colours in this photo. Excellent sharpness and details. Great POV, BG and composition.

hello Jusni

WOW ! another of your great macrophoto shots,
i'll start with the excellent luminosity of the image
and density of the colours that i love it,
excellent POV and framing, great DOF,
excellent sharpness and details, TFS


Hi Jusni,

Beautiful shot, well executed with good composition, depth of field and perspective. But it's the exposure that really makes the shot for me. It would have so easy for you to bleach out the whites, but you got it spot on.
