Salam Jusni,
an exciting capture of this skipper. Very sharp at the head, so well seen including the hairs and dark bulky eye.
Well presented shot.

A fine capture of what may again be Potanthus omaha taken from not the easiest POV, but with good DOF and sharpness in a pleasing composition against a contrasting natural BG.
Thanks and best regards,
