Hi Valerian my neighbour,

Hello Valerian,
A very fine and well-timed capture of this Skipper feeding on the flower. Great focus on the eye and sharp details against a fine pastel background.
TFS and best regards, Ulla

Buna Valerian,
Frumoasa imagine cu detalii bune si culori plaute. Si claritatea este mai buna ca la cele anterioare iar fundalul uniform iti pune in evidenta subiectul.
Numai bine,

Hello Valerian,
A very nice photo of this skipper in beautiful natural colours. Maybe the sharpness could be a bit better. Good POV, DOF and plain BG.

Beautiful skipper image feeding on lovely flower. tfs.

Hallo Valerian
it is very difficult from this macro shot to tell about the correct ID that may be the Small Skipper (Thymelicus sylvestris), in Thymelicus lineola the underside tip of antennae is black, in T. sylvestris orange; a very good image, splendid natural colours, very well composed with a lovely pose on the flower
Best regards

Buna Valerian,
O captura foarte faina. Detalii bune si culori naturale excelente.
Numai bine!
