Hello Jitti,
Great close-up of this little butterfly new to me. I like the pose very much and the antennae "sniffing" on the next flower. Very sharp and nice natural colours against the green background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Good image, Jitti.
Compo and colors as well as sharpness are well done.

Another very beautiful capture from you!
The macro work here is exceptional!
The side POV really shows the beauty of this "Cupid"'s wings.
The details are very nice and sharp, the exposure is really spot-on and the DOF is simply amazing, giving you a wonderfully blurred BG.
Very well done!

Bravo and TFS

Hello Jitti,
You're most probably right about the ID of this lycaenid that you have captured well with fine lighting showing the subtle colours of the undersides of the wings.
Excellent sharpness, BG and comp.
TFS and best wishes, Ivan

Helo Jitti,
Is it falling on its head? :D. Great composition. Little one sting one little flower. Amazing details of antenna, head and foot.Background is very well acheived. You might have used Super Macro. How did get so close to this one as they are so busy?

Hi Jitti.
One of the best your butterfly shot. Bravo.
Razor sharpness and outstanding details of the butterfly, which is in amazing expressive pose. It is illuminated perfectly and reflection of its colour is wonderful. These word I can say concerning flower. But BG with its colour (and light) spots and blurriness is simply outstanding in its beauty. My congratulations and TFS.

Simple, clear and effective presentation JC with good focus and very good achieved bottom.

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

I like it: notes.

I don't like it: nothing to argue.

Good detaisl as much in the butterfly as in the flower that sustains it.
TFS and greetings... Ricardo
