Hi Jitti,
Very neat picture showing this Nymphalid in a very natural surrounding. Good colours and details, excellent focus. Thanks.

Hello Jitti,
A delightful capture of this Nymphalid butterfly, the Little Map-wing. It is sharp, well composed and contrasts superbly against the gravelly ground.
Great that you took it from your archives and thanks for sharing it,

Hello Jitti,
Brilliant view of this beautiful butterfly settled amongst the gravel to seek moisture.
Exellent sharp details and lovely colours against a very fine dark natural background.
I like the stick on the right too matching the colour of the buttefly. Lovely capture!
Many thanks, Ulla

Hi Jitti,

I don't remember seeing a Map Winged before. Beautiful colors and markings shown in fine detail. The butterfly stands out very well from the background.

Wooow! Now that is beautiful!
Probably one of the most stunning butterflies I've ever seen!
The intricate patterns and colours on its wings are magnificent.
Great POV that is very nearly parallel to the wings, showing a clear, undistorted, view of them.
Sharp with great clarity.
Superb DOF.
Very well done Jitti!
