I intended to post the upperside of Y. hurbneri today. But this morning (around 9AM) I got this upperside of H. erylus and decided to post this one instead. I found this Common Tit basking on Ixora bushes. I think this blue is more interesting.

Hello Jitti,
absolutely perfect and beautiful picture of the Hypolycaena. I could observe similar species in West-Papua. Your picture shows very realistic colours. Focus and sharpness are highly convinving. ... to my favourites!
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Jitti,
9:00am, aren't you the early bird :)
Perfect color and exposure, nice detail.
The iridescent blue color came out very nice, with it's subtle variance in shades.
Well done!

hello Jitti,
What a beautiful butterfly! Like made out of blue velvet, like a beautiful night.
And you show it in a very natural manner.
Thanks so much

Hi Jitti
Another beautiful butterfly shot. Great sharpness nice natural not disturbing surrounding.

About composition: Maybe you could do a square crop or crop it a little bit from the lefy and very little from the bottom
Best wishes

Hi Jitti,
This is an absolute beauty and a special one too. Fantastic colours and sharp details. I wonder how its inner side would look - must be as beautiful. Among the greens it looks majestic. Excellent POV to portray it and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Jitti,

I think this is the first time I've seen this butterfly. It looks like blue velvet - very beautiful. Nice details and shows off well in the midst of the green leaves.

Dear Jitty,

wonderful capture of this iridescent butterfly. The choice of shadowy light works perfect for this particular species. Well done!

My best regards,

Hola Jitti,
Preciosa toma de esta bella mariposa, buena definición y detalle, sus bonitos colores bien contrastados con el fondo. Saludos
José Ramón

Hello JC,
Unusually attractive colour, sometimes the more muted version is the most appealing!
The insect is well framed with good textures, showing the silky-crisp wings well...
Pleasant composition!
