This is update to my previous post Here that showed markings on upper side wings. This time showed markings on underside surface.

Kingdom: Animalia
Phylum: Arthropoda
Class: Insecta
Order: Lepidoptera
Family: Nymphalidae
Subfamily: Satyrinae
Genus: Mycalesis

Mycalesis is a widespread east Asian genus, ranging from India to Australia. Many species exhibit seasonal polyphenism, with very different-looking wet and dry season forms. This has made the taxonomy of the group tricky, with many synonymies.

Hello JC,
Excellent capture of this satyrid, sharp, fine contrasting BG and well composed. There is a little noise, but this does not spoil the shot.
Well done,

Hi Jitti,
wonderful capture and very well composed. I love the warm colors and tones. Good POV and sharp details.

Brilliant capture, JC. Those perfectly aligned eye-spots along the edge of the wing add beauty to this otherwise dull coloured butterfly.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Jitti,
Beautiful shot, with excellent pov showing to good effect the pattern on the butterfly's wings. Colours are very well toned and the details sharp.

salut jitti
encore un cliché de toute beauté,même les yeux sont dans les tons des ailes.
bonne netteté,le cadrage est lergerement trop serré sur le dessus a mon avis.

Hello Jitti
What a beautiful butterfly! I think also it is Mycalesis intermedia. Very good shot and composition.

Hello Jetti
This is a beautiful batterfly and a superb composition.
The details are beautiful and the colors great.

Hi Jitti,
Nicely capturing this grey butterfly.
Sharp but some jaggies are visible at edge of the leaf.
Nice shot.

Another excellent capture JC with a very good point of view and great definition of the butterfly.

I like it a lot: composition, POV, DOF, focus, sharpness, color, lighting, background.

I like it: framing (something adjusted vertically), notes.

I don't like it: nothing.

Attention with the level of compression of the image for not losing quality in the process.
My best greetings... Ricardo

Nice capture of this butterfly. This looks just lovely. Nice details and great POV



Hello Jitti,
Interesting shot, it´s similar to a butterfly of Argentina, but with less "eyes" in the wings. good colors and composition, but the image is refocused or cropped?
Best regards
