Great POV and we can see where this guy is looking really clearly :)
Great composition.

Hi . Going to be late home from the office tonight so just a note for now to say great shot .well done TFS.

Hello JC,
Impressive sharpness in the wing pattern!
The colours in the insect makes it stand out well on the deep green background, DOF spot on gives a 3-D feeling to the image...
A fine dynamic omposition, attractive to my eyes!

Ciao Jitti,
complimenti per questa foto, veramente ben realizzata.
A parte l'ottima messa a fuoco, quello che piů mi piace in questa immagine e la sua composizione e lo sfondo scuro, che mette perfettamente in risalto i colori delle ali di questa bella Neptis.

Hi Jitti

Such wonderful clear shot of a very beautiful butterfly. It gave you a lovely pose and you utilised your opportunity very well to capture a great image.

Technically everything is well in place. A complimentary BG that is well isolated by the DOF, natural rich colours, excellent exposure control, and a well proportioned composition.

Good work and TFS.

Hi Jitti,
I will be back.

Hi Jitti,
A beautiful capture of this common sailer in wings closed position. Excellent details and a very good composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Ahh Jitti, everytime I see you work I want to get back to Thailand. You have a fantastic country, great wildlife, friendly people and the best food in the world.
Anyway, enough dreaming, this is another great shot with your new camera, though I wonder if you slightly misspelt the common name :).
Great sharpness and DOF. I like the slight diagonal POV from behind and teh shaddow on the leaf. good background.

Hi Jitti.
I see you manage with any camera simply greatly. Bravo, my friend, another splendid picture. POV, amazing sunlight and vibrant colours, terrific sharpness and wonderful BG. My congratulations and thanks for pleasure.

Hi Jitti,
What a great composition. I especially like the part you let for us to see its shadow :) This DOF you chose has created a nice blurred background with perfect exposure and good details. This is lovely specie. Thanks!
