Pyrgus communis orcynoides

Class: Insecta
Order: Ditrysia -
Family: Hesperiidae
Sub family: Pyrginae

It is a small butterfly, of 3 or 4 centimeters of wingspread. I took this photo approaching as much not to assure one to me before it went away, but... I take the film last exposure and I could not do more. I think that he is a little rescueable. I publish it to present the species and because I liked the composition.
It is taken with lens of 58 mm and one magnifying glass, com always I do it with the insects.
All critiques are welcome.

Hi Hernan, me gusta mucho. Sorry I don' speack Spanish, I will learn this eautiful language so similar to Italian.
The shot is nice with colours and framing and with a great control of the deep of field

Hello Hernan,
Very nice composition of this butterfly. Bright colours and a good background. A little pity is that the butterfly is a bit out of focus. Nevertheless a good attempt, keep going Hernan.
Regards, Ruud
