Hi Jitti,

Exceptionally beautiful shot of this butterfly. The colors are magnificent and the background blends in so well. Wonderfully sharp details. A lovely composition.


Hello JC,
Good point of view and excellent details in this beauty!
The composition is well balanced, and makes the beautiful insect stand out well with an effective 3-D feeling...
The wing patterns are well reproduced, super textures and vivid colours!
