A beauty, it is really impressing.
Your usual quality, allows enjoying the fantastic soft gradients of the wings.
Looks very natural and elegant.
Thanks and best regards, Felipe.

This is such a beautiful specie Manyee. I would have been impressed seeing this beauty in real. Its colors and shape are beautiful and this is a very nice capture of it with its lovely wings wide opened. Exposure is good too as we clearly see details on the dark tones and no trace of OE in the bright parts. Well done!

beautiful picture of this tropical Cethosia butterfly. Nice colours! Most suitable point of view and superb sharpness. Even a human fingerprint is seen on the right forewing - not able to identify it :-)!
Best wishes, Peter

Nice to see the female for a change instead of the more colourful male. I expect the females are harder to find and photograph. That usually seems to be the case. I wonder if she showed you her underside... Thanks

This is a wonderful composition of a beautiful butterfly with fully spread wings. The male of this species is one of the most beautiful butterflies in the world!
I like the diagonal composition showing the insect in a natural environment. I like the fact that the space behind the butterfly is darker than the one in front of it.
The relatively difficult to expose subject was perfectly exposed! The details are astonishing in both highlights and shadows. I like the textures in the wings and the pale golden colors at the base of the wings. Thank you for sharing!
With Friendly Regards,

This is another beauty ManYee. I like the way the leaves frame your subject. The colors are lovely... not at all over-saturated or "contrasty" I think the sharpness your managed in your shot is perfect. On my monitor Howard's workshop looks a bit over sharpened.

An utterly fascinating butterfly which I have seen for the first time, Manyee.
Ideal point of view and remarkable colours and details on the wings.
Thanks for your kind words on my Peacock Pansy picture. I appreciate it.
