[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It came to my garden for a short visit and I was lucky to be there with all necessary things - camera and time. I'm also trying to identify this Red-eyed Skipper. I'd be obliged if someone comes up with its identity.

Some minor enhancing on Neat Image has been done to what it is now. Slight cropping has also been done.

Hello Dinu,
nice sharp picture of this dark coloured skipper with its impressive red eyes. Structural details are even visible on the dark brown wings although the light comes from the back. Great depth of field to show both antennae arther sharp. The water droplets add to the attractivity of the picture!
Best wishes, Peter

Hi Dinu
Very nice image of this skipper. Nice warm colours and impressive red eyes of the butterfly.
Nice uniform background.
Thanks for sharing
