Hello Jitti,
The thumbnail doesn't really show the subject, now I see why. This couple preferred to hide in middle of leaves, just to be quiet. Very fine picture, charming subject and subtle colours. Well done!

hallo Jitti

thanks greeting lou

Hi Jitti.
First of all I am impressed with amazing BG. It is simply great and it underlines an attractive scene with pair beautiful butterflies on a nice leaf perfectly. Clarity and 3D-look of the shot are also wonderful. Warm regards and TFS.

Hallo Jitti
I will never, ever forget the fact that I learned from one of your photos that you posted here during my 1st months here on Trek Nature that this is how butterflies look when they are mating. I have learned so much from people like yourself about subjects I knew nothing about. I thank you for your contribution in my education process. This image is beautiful and I agree with Anne that the thumbnail does not show well, but the enlarged image is a total different story and a beautiful one too. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
