Large Chequered Skipper
first, I think that there are a lot of interesting and unique nature documents in the slide archives around the world. Second, I hope that the digital era does not prevent their publication. So, thank you for posting the picture of this very attractive skipper. Colours an composition are pretty good. To improve sharpness a little I tried a workshop which sometimes helps to polish these treasures.
Best wishes, Peter

Great that you scanned this shot of the Large Checquered Skipper to show us on TN.
This site is not a competition to see who can produce the sharpest, best composed shot with the best BG. Though these characteristics are important, what is at least equally important is to be able to contribute a picture of something interesting or unusual in our natural environment, something to remind us that we live in a world that is still wonderful!
Thank you for posting this shot.
Best wishes, Ivan

What a beautiful skipper. I don't mind that it isn't perfectly sharp. The markings on the wing are stunning. Great POV and colours

I was just preparing to make a workshop for you but then I saw Peter has already done that.The butterfly has amazing patterns but as everbody mentioned the sharpness is lacking.The soft BG enriches the composition and brings out the subject well.
Well done & TFS.

Look big for a skipper. Well composed and nice color tone. As you said sharpness a bit soft here, but beautiful overall.

What beautifully patterned wings this fellow has. An I love his colours too. Well shown Jacob. It could be sharper, but the lighting and colours and the moth itself, make it a winner. TFS

Lovely shot of this beautiful butterfly and consdering that it is a scan, it's really great.
Excelletn POV and DOF, leaving a very beautiful blurry BG and keeping the buterfly in focus.
Lovely colors and tones, too. Also the light seems to fall so well on it, making it look even nicer.
Bravo and TFS
Thank you very much for showing it, for it is really precious and not much seen. I should like to know its scientific name also.
The shot is very nice in all aspects. I like it very much.

I my opinion not only perfect picture should be posted there. Your picture is good enough ;-)
