Hello Laurens
Superb shot of this Long-tailed Skipper, very nice detail a great composition with a fine pose and POV, very well saturated colours.

Wowww... a tailed skipper? ıt is very interesting species.
I think our MF Jesus has uploaded a similar one. Perfectly composed and focused macro MF!
TFS and have a nice night!


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.

Hi Lou,

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!

Hallo Lou.

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

Hello Lou,
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.
kind regards

Hello Laurens,
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
