Helo Jitti,
thank you for posting a picture of this moth species. Colours and structural details are nice. However, I feel that some parameters were set to high by image processing, perhaps too much sharpening or contrast enhancement.
Best wishes, Peter

Peter is right, JC. Some distortion seems to have taken place due to over-sharpening, maybe.
Other than that, it is an exotic species of a moth you have captured here.
TFS and bye.

Hi Jitti,
This is a very brillant, clear and detailed portrait of this moth. I like the fact that we can also see little dew (?) drops on he leaf he's on. The colors are very good and I think that he has something which looks a bit like a bee (pattern on his body:) Well done and thanks!

Hello Jitti,
Superb catch, great species! pov, tight framing, sharpness all are great! Leaf details impressive too!
Thank you and best regards,

Good shot Jitti, the S3 has done quite well here and good use of the flash.
