Hello friends in TN.

This is a small butterfly spotted close to the sea. I think this is female Glass Jewel.

The Grass Jewel (Chilades trochylus) is a small butterfly found in Africa, southern Europe, India and southern Asia that belongs to the Lycaenids or Blues family.

fine closeup of this little beauty, good composition. tfs.

I tried to correct the seemingly cyan cast here when I realized that actually my version is not much different from the original, Jusni! Good day! That means that the white balance is very close to perfection! Bravo. Lovely capture of a Grass Jewel taken with care and precision. I love the perfect dept of the field, the sharpness and the great point of view!

Hello Jusni,
Nice Lycaenid, shoted from perfect POV and with good light.
You used a tool to reduce noise? ... I see details a bit "softened" in the wing textures; this may be due to processing to reduce noise.

Hola Jusni

Bella mariposa con perfecta nitidez y muy agradable el fondo de las hojas difuminada.

Un saludo de Antonio
