[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I wish to dedicate this post of the butterfly from the Kampong Bengoh's jungle of Borneo to him. Jusni came to visit in Kuching and I hope he brings back good memories of Borneo. Shot at the riverbank sand of upstream river that will be dammed up to build a water reservoir for Kuching for next 20 years.

This is the 1st time that I have seen Jusni in person after having seen his photos through TE and TL for more than a year. In the WS, I post something that many of you will be curious to find out.

Jusni, thank you for your visit to Kuching and I had a great time with you, even the dinner with your family.

iso200, FL300mm. Shot without any macro lens, so heavy cropping is done without sacrifice of sharpness.

Hi Bill,
lovely capture of the butterfly. Jusni will definitely like it very much.
Sharp and the colours are well seen. The big eye is also very exciting to look at.
Excellent presentation of this naturally perched creature.

hello Bill,
A beautiful butterfly for Jusni! I like the WS picture too,nice to see our photographers at work!
Now I just would like to know what kind of butterfly it is! But I'm sure somebody will help. It is anyway a striking beauty.
Very natural presentation.
Thanks and best regards

Such a lovely brown! tfs :)

Hello Bill

have a good WE

Hello Bill,
Thanks for your kind critique on my macro of a dragonfly's eyes.
I used my Sigma 105mm macro lens for taking that picture. Incidently, I had also used fill flash for that shot. I missed out giving these details while uploading that picture. Sorry!

Your picture of this very ornate butterfly is very good. The eye-spots on its lower wings facing the camera are beautiful. All the details and colours on the subject are excellent.
I wish you had given us some idea about the ID of this species.

I am pleased to know that you had a great get-together with Jusni. I also met two TN friends personally in NEW Delhi and it was like the re-union of long-lost friends, though we had never met each other before.
Thanks and take care.

Hi Bill,
Beautiful capture of this butterfly.I liked POV,harmonious colors,details and composition are wonderful.
Have a great weekend!
Thanks for posting.

Hi Bill,

This is really good. I remembered you were shooting from far behind with your tele and the effect is excellent. The shallow focus with the sand underneath this beautiful specie is perfectly captured. This is as good as a macro shot and the compound eyes are brilliant with fine markings on the wings.

As for my Tokina, I think the lens is a bit faulty which I thought my D80 metering went haywire. Will be seeing more posts from you in TN... you are such a versatile photographer.

Have a wonderful day ahead.

Hi Bill!

I like your picture very much, particularly because of the special light conditions. They create a fine effect and the colours are natural. The background, although a little bit vivid, suits the main subject very well.

Kind regards


Hello Bill! Wonderful art work. Amazing marco. Perfect sharpness. Good luck!

Ciao Bill, fantastic butterfly with splendid colors, wonderful details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Good picture on this fine butterfly. With good sharpness and a nice POV.
Best wishes,

Hi Bill,

The close-up point of view ius shwoing with precision the details and colors of the butterfly. The subject is well framed. The surrouding light brings out the colors of the insect. Have a nice day.


Hello Bill, beautiful capture of this beautiful butterfly. Nice sharp focus. The patterns and colors are so nicely visible. Good shallow depth and lighting. TFS.

Superb shot, Bill!And dedicated to a swell person!

Nice capture, Bill. Good sharpness on the 'fly and just the right DoF to isolate it from the same-colored background. I like the limited color palatte.

Hi Bill, It is a pleasure to see your collection. This photo in particular, clearly reflects the details of the insect. The texture and colors of this butterfly's wings are almost artistic. Very well captured, well you have taken advantage of the current conditions. Greetings from Venezuela.


Hi Bill

Wow, this is a wonderful capture and composition. You have really sharp detail and the colors are amazing! Well done and thanks for sharing with us...
