Not many butterflies these days. This one flew pass me unexpectedly and rested on this stick. I was able to take a few shots and this is the best one.

Excellent close up. The composition, DOF, BG all make for a good pic.

A rather difficult angle but you have managed it well, JC.
Cerulean is a pretty butterfly with that curious tail. Very good colours but sharpening has created pin-pricks on certain parts.

Hello Jitti,
I wonder why there are less butterflies now, is it too hot? But you managed to get a splendid capture of this beauty while very nicely perched at the end of a twig. Great focus, sharp details and beautiful colours.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Ciao Jitti,
una specie davvero molto particolare e dal fantastico disegno sulle ali.
In questa foto mi piace particolarmente la messa a fuoco sul capo e sulle antenne.

Hola amigo.
Una bella mariposa con estupendos detalles y buena nitidez.
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Hi Jitti,
A lovely capture of this beautiful cerulean. Very good details and a nice composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Nicely shot. How i wish the light shine from upper front for more color exposure.
Best regards,

Intéressant papillon que l'on de voit pas souvent dans ces colonnes.
Bonne journée.

Hi Jitti,
Wonderful shot of this tiny but beautiful butterfly. Nice colours and designs on its wings and you have captured a fine pose. Very neat and sharp image with great lighting. Excellent POV and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Jitti,

Very nice composition. Good POV and focus. Good light and colours. Perhaps too much noise in the background.

Hello Jitti

Another beautiful butterfly capture.
The details are excellent.Very good focus and sharpness.
The lighting and colours are wonderful.
You have captured a very good pose.


Hello JC,
I like the point of view and the position of the butterfly!
The insect stands out well and gives a 3-D impression, good colour palette...
