I took this couple around 8.23 in the cloudy morning. There were other butterfly species that I photographed in the same morning that I wish to post in the near future. Thank for looking and have a nice weekend.

Hello Jitti,
A superb capture of these two mating Chinese Darts Taken from a great POv with excellent sharpness and I like the composition on the bowed grass blade against a great OOF natural BG.
Thanks and all the best,

hi jitti
Very nice picture of this beauty. nice sharpness and details

Hello Jitti,
well approached, perfectly focussed, precisely detailed, well composed presentation of this pair of skippers posing on a blade of grass smoothly emerging from a a well supporting distant background. Pleasantly soft natural light has created a meditative atmosphere of silence and peace - well fitting for Confucius.
With thanks, and best regards,
