    Vinh nice captures, #3 my favorite, looks like if you touched the picture you could feel the texture on the wing. Thanks for camera settings.

    Very nice series Vinh. I just love the eyes on these guys. :wink:
     
  5. Beautiful images Vinh. The wing on that first shot is really hammered but it is still an nice image. Well done.

    Wonderful series, Vinh. You did well to capture such beautiful specimens.
     
  7. I like the red on the first one's wings but really like the backlighting on the last shot. All nicely done, Vinh!!

    Amazing photos! Gordon's right, it looks like the butterfly in the first photo really took a beating!

    very very good Vinh. Love the colors.
     
  11. Love the last one Vinh. It looks like he is posing for you! Love that 70-180!!!
     
  12. I'm glad that you like them. Thanks all for your nice feedbacks. I am wondering why some of you like the backlighting in the last one. I thought it was not good because F/11 caused the background did not blur. I like the green blured background in macro shots as number 1 and 2.
