I wish the Treklens community around the world a happy new year - un bon nouvel an - ein gutes neues Jahr - un feliz ano nuevo - sawatdii pii mai - or whatever you say in your languages.

I would also like to thank you very much for your visits and kind help in improving my photographic skills during the last year. And give a big hug to those friends who have kept contact in the recent months while I was absent from TL.

The photo was taken at the butterfly garden in Bangkok's Park Suan Rot Fai.

PP: cropped, resized, added text and framed
I know the butterfly is a bit soft, but I like it this way.

Hi Cordelia
A very happy new year to you.

A very good shot of this butterfly. Good detail on the butterfly and the flower. Background out of focus. However I personally find the highlights on the left distracting. Otherwise well done. TFS.

Précisons impeccable ,le montage du professionel, et que dire de la précision des couleurs du papillon.toute une photo. Je la mets dans mes favoris. maintenant considérant mon 56 ans , pas trop vite il faut que je cherche pour comment faire mais je vais réussir en chercant un peu Réal.
