Hello Mariana.

Great capture of this skipper.
The detail is very good and it stands out nicely against its background which is well out of focus.
Great capture and TFS

Hello Mariana,
A skipper is always an interesting subject and difficult to photograph. I like the way they have overcome the problems of light in this photo,getting a result with good colors and textures. Interestingly, the background is right for a nice contrast. Good job. Good cut square. Regards, Jesús
