Several times in the past that I met an Orange Tip. It always in a hurry to fly passed me. This time it also had fast beating wings. But the sweet from Ixora gave me a chance to take a few photos. This is the one that I would like to present to you all.

Hello Jitti,

Great capture of this beautiful butterfly.
Nice colours with great details.
Lighting and composition are splendid.
Good note.

Hi Jitti,
Well done. I know how skittish these large pierids are, but you have caught this one feeding. The definition is very good, although I think the red BG detracts a bit from the colours of the butterfly. But... you can't have everything. Thanks.

Hello Jitti,
Though this is a worn specimen it is a sharp capture of a Great Orange Tip taken from a fine lateral POV and nicely composed on the red flowers.
This species is not often seen on TN.
Thanks and all the best,

Hi Jitti,
A nice capture of this great orange tip. Very good composition and sharp details. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Jitti
This butterfly is a beautiful one in spite of his damaged wings and you have taken it with superb details, great composition with the surrounding red flowers

You have a very impressive galery of wonderful shots
Have a good night

Hallo Jitti
Although this butterfly’s wing is a bit worn, this is a beautiful specimen. The patterns on the upper part of the wing are lovely in contrast with the neutral colour of the lower part of the wing.
The brightly coloured flowers as your backdrop emphasise the details of this Great Orange Tip to its best. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Jutti !
This old and worn-out butterfly looks wonderful, even with his dull colors. The sharpness and details are amazing, the colors are very natural and yet the red is so vivid, the composition and POV are perfect, and I also like the pose of the butterfly, with the tongue out to drink. You have captured him with skill and talent. Very well done !
