Hi Folks , today I have this image of a skipper butterfly on top of some goldenrod. there is not really much to say about the insect or flower , they are both quite common , really I just took the shot because of the lighting.

thanks for looking , hope you like it

Hi Robert
Waw...what a great yellow skipper!
I never see one yellow like your!
Perfect details and great capture!

Hello Hart,
fantastic image, details, sharpness, and colors at maximum of quality. Very very good photo. Compliments, Paolo

Hi Art,this is an attractive photo as the light as you say has a quality to it that I like as well.I find myself running over the same old ground when it comes to photoing subjects as I have many photos of these butterflies but I continue to hone my skills on them and keep looking for the best light for to photo them in,common to see but a welcome sight just the same.I like the clear details this little guy has, as the fuzzy hair on it really shows up well and the richness of the colour gives it such a glow.I think that I might try doing more macros as I like most of the close in insect shots you have shown us here on TN.I like this one,Art. Thanks for sharing.
