[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Peacock Pansy, Junonia almana, is a species of nymphalid butterfly found in South Asia. It exists in two distinct adult forms, which differ chiefly in the patterns on the underside of the wings; the dry-season form has few markings, while the wet-season form has additional eyespots and lines.

Daring close-up of this Peacock Pansy, neighbour.
Very good overall focus on the magnified area.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Foozi
Wonderful your butterfly!
Details and colors are great!
I like it.

it looks like fantastic my friend, thanks and have a nice day

WOW... very nice macro with the "eyes" pattern just peeping over the bottom of the frame.


Hi Foozi,

The tight frame is an asset to the composition. The close-up view is showing with precision the details and colors of the Peacock Pansy butterfly. The early afternoon light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Foozi! Perfect macro, ideal contrast and sharpness. Good frame. Sophisticated effect. Well done!

Hi MF Foozi,

After a long trip to Middle East i could find a pretext to visit TN and write some comments to all friends.
This is impressive macro shot of this a Malaysian beauty.
The tones really seem to stand out against. The focus and DOF look great too.
TFS and have day MF!
Greetings from Samaan Citadel (Syria)

Hello Foozi!

Perfect macro of this colorfull butterfly. I like tigh crop and details on wings. 'Eyes' look scary for every predator. Great work.

Ciao Foozi. Good close up to appreciate the colours and this beauty.


A pesar del evidente desenfoque y saturación alta del color, la fotografía que nos muestras tiene su intrés por los recortes y formas que se nos muestran con el recorte. Un original y efectivo trabajo.
