Great close-up shot of this beautiful skipper. Maybe an f/7 aperture would have brought both antenna into sharp focus, but still a wonderful presentation just as it is. You clearly show the intricate patterned markings and earth toned colors on it's outside wings. You could not ask for any better exposure and the overall composition is very eye pleasing.
You have now made me curious as to what it looks like with opened wings, I will have to check it out on the web:) Well done!!

Beautiful flash-handling and control again, and you got wonderful colors also. Composition's nice, too, and I love the full eye contact. :-) Perfectly exposed, spectacular image. Bravo.
Best regards, László
PS: I, too, checked out this species with open wings on the net. Hm... not so bad... :-)

La feuille aide au cadrage du papillon. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du papillon Cogia calchas. La bonne luminoaité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.

A very nice shot of this skipper in very good sharpness and nice details. Taken from a fine lower point of view with an intelligent use of flash. A very nice composition overall. Thanks you for sharing,
