[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a drab looking butterfly. I found this butterfly near my place in Nakorn Nayok.

Family: Nymphalidae
SubFamily: Satyrinae
Genus: Mycalesis
Species: Probably Mycalesis Intermedia

Members of this family are generally brush-footed butterflies, this refers to the reduced pair of the first legs or forelegs that are covered in dense hairs.
The front pair of legs is inconspicuous and much smaller that the other four.

They are not used for walking or holding but for cleaning their antennae and other parts of their body.
Butterflies in this family have a distinctive way of flying, after every wingbeat, they hold their wings stretched out from their body and glide for a while without moving their wings.

Hi Jitty!
Your butterflies are very vivid. This is looking somewhat battered - maybe it has flewn a long distance fighting against a stron wind...
Very good dof and colors!

Agradable composición Jitti con suaves y contrastantes tonos entre el insecto y su entorno.
Muy buena nitidez con atinado POV y DOF que permite difumar el fondo de la imagen.
Saludos... Ricardo
