Hi friends in TN,

The NE wind is blowing strong in my homeland and this means a long dry spell is already here. Rain will be expected in March or April and the grass is dying up. Skippers and dry form butterflies are homing for the night as this shot was registered rather late in the evening.

Thanks for viewing and have a wonderful weekend ahead.

Great focusing,composition and sharpness,

Salam Jusni
very beautiful Skipper species and its great shot. Sharp focus, POV, composition with flower very nice. Thanks for sharing.
We have also some similar species here. But I am not sure its species, since it is from very different zoogeographic region.
best wishes my friend

Hi Jusni,

A wonderful shot of this little Skipper on the flower that I cannot identify. You captured the butterfly in a great position to show him off. Nice colors and details and a lovely composition. A belated Happy New Year.

Hello Jusni !
Another excellent shot from you ! I love all the details, on both the moth and the 'hairy' flower (I thnk she is as beautiful as the moth, in this case).I also like the blurred BG, the composition, the POV and the pose of the Skipper. You also managed the light of yur flash perfectly. Very wel done !

hello Jusni

WOW ! what a superb focus on the insecte and plant,
superb luminosity and colour tones with excellent contrast,
photo shot with very fine POV and framing,
excellent sharpness and details, TFS


Hi Jusni, Wonderful macro capture of this pretty skipper with great details and sharpness. Composition is wonderful and great DOF .
TFS. Have a nice weekend MF!


Hi Jusni,

Excellent detail and sharpness in this fine composition. A very interesting pattern on its wings too, quite different than most Skippers.

Hi Jusni.
What a crisp sharp image of the small butterfly and impressive flower. Combination of wonderfully illuminated main subject (by precise flash light) and damper up and also nicely coloured BG is great. POV and composition of the shot are blameless too. Excellent macro shot. My compliments.

Salam Jusni,
yes...I culd feel the dry wind seizing the day. The moisture seems to evaporate too soon before you realise the insects and crawlies are hiding. The mushroom coiled up is desperateness, but the hunters keep on going.
The beauty of this earth is still plenty at any time.
Have a wonderful dry season hunting.
A nice capture of this superbs sharp skipper.
