Una rara, preciosa y pequeña mariposa, ajena para los Europeos. Me gusta también la excelente captura de la flor, que se llevó la parte dominante del foco.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

According to the experts this is a Long-tailed Skipper and I don't remember seeing one before. The bright flower it is posing on is a wonderful contrast to the butterfly. Beautiful colors and details - I love the bud!

Prachtige foto, je ziet mooi hoe hij met zijn tong de honing uit het hart van de bloem haalt.
Prachtige kleuren ook.

Very colorful butterfly picture. This Hesperiidae-butterfly has well chosen its flower! There are some butterflies which look quite close to this one in Jesus Linares' gallery(Venezuela). You might have a look there for an eventual ID.
I wish you a nice week and Merry Christmas.

you managed very well to capture this fast and busy tropical skipper.
I think that it belongs to the genus Urbanus. It looks like Urbanus simplicius.
But I'm not sure on the species identity.
Best wishes, Peter
