Hi Jose,
Splendid frame. Like this sharpness near 1/200 s - super. Beautiful colours. To be visible where butterfly aims (to clover :) ). Revelation.

Wow, what a marvellous mid-flight capture of the Skipper approaching to land on a flower, Jose! And that too at shutter speed 1/200.
The frontal limbs such as the eyes, antennae, proboscis and legs are sharply captured.
I love this great image.
Best regards and thanks for sharing this picture.

Hi Jose,
Excellent capture of the skipper in flight. Outstanding POV and detail. Very well done.

Hola José,
que se puede decir en estos casos,
genial sorprendente, oportuna...
quizá de todo un poco,
lo que si es, un trabajo digno de un gran fotográfo,
felicidades amigo.
saludos

Great in flight capture of this lovely skipper Jose.
Love the movement in the wings wich do give the image a great dynamic touch.
Excellent work done by using the flash at 1/200th to freeze the body, tongue and antennas of the skipper and leave movement in the wings.
Great sharpness and lighting.
Colors and details are most wonderful.
Thanks for sharing.
Best regards,
Harry

Hi José,
What a fabulous in-flight capture of a Skipper! The best I've seen!! I love the spread-out wings, the rolled up proboscis and the dangling legs! All very sharp and against a beautiful soft background.

Hi Jose,

Hello José Ramón,
A superb in-flight capture, with the most amazing details in the insect!
Wonderful colours, the macro work is most skilfully done with pin sharp details in the insect...
A well composed presentation, attractive colour palette!
Greetings,

great POV and composition..

Hi Jose,
Excellent moment shot
great one
cheers

Belle photo de ce superbe papillon et en plus pris en vol, grande netteté et beaucoups de détails de lui meme et de cette jolies fleur. Beau flou pour le reste de la scène.Cela le fait ressortire encore plus. Amitiés Thomas

Aun no aterrizó y ya esta desplegando su espiral.
Siempre es gratificante disfrutar de un insecto en vuelo, sobre todo con un punto de vista y fondo tan bonitos. Buen foco en la cabeza, quizas un pelín más de velocidad lo hubiera fijado mejor, auqnue no le quedan mal del todo las estelas de movimiento :)
Salu2.

José Ramón, realmente impresiomante tu captura. Los ligeros desenfoques de algunas zonas lógicos: a ver quien capta desde ese ángulo un insecto en vuelo con esa ampliación y esos detalles de la cabeza... Felicidades por tu habilidad y seguro que triunfas con esta toma, no es para menos. Saludos.

WOW! This is an amazing shot!!! Wonderful in-flight shot. Great composition - great color - great lighting - just all around great photo. Even with the motion, you managed a great dof! WOW!
