Hello Mariana,
A superb photo of the Chequered Skipper showing sharp details and lovely natural colours. I love its pose on the pretty blue flower and the fine soft background too. Very well done!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

Hi Mariana,
Lovely composed shot of this beautiful skipper with great colors and good BG

Hi Mariana,
I love this one, you captured it with so beautiful open wings on a pretty flower.
I think it's Carterocephalus palaemon. I had this one from the back-side on TL 2 weeks ago.
I love the colours in your shot - and the light, very well done, thanks
