Hello Jitty,
pretty, well describing shot of a fascinating little hairstreak butterfly. Beautiful colours, good details for the very small object presented in such a large scale.
Problem is the noise all over the picture.
Tried a little workshop to remove noise on background.
Thank you, best regards,

Very beautiful and interesting butterfly. Well caught. Photo is very noisy. Try Neat Image or Noiseware Professional to reduce the noise.


Helo Jitti!
But for the noise, it is a reasonably good image of a rather unusual species.

Hi Jitti,
Toooooooooooo much noise. Otherwise, a beautiful butterfly image. I would suggest, instead of 2.8, you can shoot at f-11 or f-16. And use less sutter speed.here you have reversed the exposure. But a very good record of a rare speicies.

Nice post, Jitty!
Beautiful and different butterfly, well presented to TN in great details!

Hi Jitti,
Nice shot of this lovely butterfly. I agree, the photo is quite noisy, but it's the butterfly that really attracts me and makes this photo very interesting. I am fascinated by its incredible tail, so beautiful and elegant. Pretty colours in the photo too. Lovely work!

Hi Jitti,
Excellent capture of this very strange fluffy butterfly. Beautiful colours and details. Nicely managed background colours. The WS from Peter highlights all the potential of this picture. TFS, Patrick
